The roundtable “Gender Health: a contribution to an open and innovative society” was an unique opportunity to present the activity of Trigger project at the end of the financing period (2013-2017).
During this time, the activity of Trigger has clearly demonstrated how the best approach to gender health can only be multidisciplinary since it is necessary to combine the different expertise and competence of sociology, psychology and medicine to have a global view of the different aspects which are the determinant of the broad concept of health. The participation of distinguish components of the European Commission, DG RTD, has demonstrated the real interest of European Community for this specific issue. Thus future directions and areas of interest of the European Commission have been explained and discussed to make possible new applications and possibly founding which are crucial to continue the important work performed until now.
