The ITACA research institute of the UPV and the Polibienestar research institute of the UV, in the framework of the European Project EUVECA, financed by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ Programme, have developed a regional Hub in which stakeholders from the social and health sector meet periodically to discuss and share the different training initiatives that each of them is developing. This regional Hub is connected to the other European Hubs developed within the framework of the same project, with the aim of communication and generation of joint opportunities between the different partners.

The day was opened by Patricia Fernández and Jorge Navarro, from the Incliva Research Institute. They were in charge of hosting the third meeting of the European Network of education for professionals in the social and healthcare sector, where the different institutions mainly intervened to share their success stories.

Finally, and to close the day, Doriam Camacho Rodriguez was the keynote speaker at the third meeting of the Valencia Regional Network of the European Euveca Project.

She is an Associate Researcher at MINCIENCIAS, with experience in bioethics and environmental research and environmental health promotion. She is currently Dean of the Faculty of Nursing at the Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia Campus Santa Marta and a member of ANHE.

Professor Camacho discusses the impacts of climate change and its effects on health.

Doriam Camacho visualises the ethical obligation of nurses and the health sector to environmental impact and sustainability, endorsing the importance of the climate change megatrend raised in the European Euveca project.

It is important to promote a comprehensive response aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals.


All the participants in the meeting agreed on the great interest that this type of Hubs or “think tanks” arouse in the field of social and health care, where it is so necessary to focus on 21st century skills that are not included in the curricula of our universities, as well as on the 6 megatrends around which the EUVECA Project is working at European level: Ageing population, Chronic diseases, Digital transformation, Modern health consumer, Personalised medicine and Climate change.
