4th Transnational Conference on Integrated Community Care

Brussels, Belgium, March 17-19, 2020 September 8-10, 2020

We regret to announce that the 4th Transnational Conference ‘ICC 4 all. New Principles for Care’ which was due to take place on 17th-19th March 2020 in Brussels has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It has been a hard decision to take, but we believe that the current situation prevents to unlock the full potential of this conference.

Therefore we invite you to save the date for the  4th Transnational Conference on ICC that will take place from 8th to 10th September 2020 in Brussels. We plan to keep the conference programme as close as possible to the current one.

We will get back to you next week about the practicalities but do not hesitate to contact us If you have any questions in the meantime.  

We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this might cause and take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding.

We hope to see you in September in Brussels.


The final transnational conference “ICC 4 all. New principles for care” will seek to assess how the spread and sustainability of integrated community care can be supported to achieve change at scale. It would also examine issues related to effective evaluation methods to both demonstrate impact, but also to provide the essential information that can support quality improvements over time to enable integrated community care programmes to grow and mature.

The conference main objectives are to:

  1. Consolidate the collective learnings on ICC
  2. Endorse the Brussels Declaration on ‘ICC 4 all’
  3. Develop a shared transition path and roadmap to make ICC the new strategy for care
  4. Build momentum for ICC in Europe and worldwide

The conference will summon a number of storylines that help guide our way to making ICC a reality:

A ‘systems line’ to fully acknowledge the heterogeneity of ICC and to map and grasp the multitude of drivers and strategies propelling various models and practices of integrated community care.

A ‘participa(c)tive line’ to stress the importance of a shared vision, a strong narrative and everyone’s active involvement at the micro, meso and macro levels in the community and society.

An ‘implementation line’ focusing on the formulation of meaningful, effective and guiding principles to help ICC mature and solidify in a variety of contexts, changing understandings and evolving challenges. With the Brussels conference, we aspire to weave these lines into a new and aspirational narrative for ICC.
