On the 13-15 June, 64 participants from 20 countries gathered in Brussels in order to discuss the challenges facing carers across the EU and the opportunities that exist to promote their role and added value in the context of an ageing Europe.

 Recognising and supporting the role of carers is a European challenge that the Eurocarers network will continue to meet with determination, by concentrating on the practical and possible, and by showcasing stories of workable solutions on the ground.

On this page, you can find the agendas, the list of participants, as well as all the presentations that were shared during the different meetings.
