Under the motto “Active and Healthy Ageing – A model for our future!” experts from all over the Alps-Adriatic area will meet at the “Zehnerhaus” in Bad Radkersburg (Styria) from May 8th to 10th 2019.

The Alps-Adriatic Health Conference 2019 offers the unique opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field and to connect with like-minded colleagues in order to generate the necessary momentum for change.

Under the patronage of the Alps-Adriatic Alliance (AAA), the partners from Pomurje (SLO), Varaždin (CRO) and Bad Radkersburg (AUT) are working together to meet the challenges of the regional economic development in the fields of health and health tourism. 

The conference´s official languages are Croatian, German and Slovenian. Translations into English will be available as well.

The participation is free of charge!
