Earlier this year Babes-Bolyai University applied, through its Public Health Department, to become a member of the HEPA Europe Network. The membership request was firstly approved by the members of the Executive Committee and recently confirmed by the General Assembly at the 12th HEPA Europe Annual Meeting that was held in Belfast, 30 September, 2016, where the institution was represented by Elena Bozdog and Petru Sandu.

This decision makes UBB the first institution in Romania member of the renowned thematic WHO network and opens a large array of communication and collaboration opportunities in the HEPA domain across Europe and beyond.
