In the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic, the European Commission presented its plan for the building of a European Health Union, with the aim to improve the common response to health crises and the prevention and treatment of diseases such as cancer. One of the measures adopted is a new Regulation on serious cross-border threats to health and the creation of the European Health Emergency Preparedness and Response Authority (HERA). The workshop, gathering leading academics and practitioners in the field, aimed at discussing the constitutional, institutional and substantive implications of the building of a European Health Union.
