Advancing Mental Health Research Through Networking and Collaboration in Europe

EMTC was invited to an event entitled “Advancing Mental health Through Networking and Collaboration” run by the organisation for European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) on 24th and 25th October 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

COST is an EU funding programme for research networks, funding more than 300 pan-European, multidisciplinary networks in science and technology. More than 20 of these networks focus on mental health related topics, and gathered in Brussels for 2 half-days of dialogue and interaction.

During the different sessions titled “Perspectives from COST Actions”, EMTC introduced the action proposed at the Stakeholder webinar event held on April 21 for advancing mental health in Europe through professional Music Therapy and to highlight some of the activities we have been working on. Several interactive discussion rounds were planned where we interacted with other experts and shared our knowledge of the topic. The interactive format of the event encouraged dialogue and active engagement. The creation of synergies among participants will bring new advances for the Music Therapy profession in Europe.
