This Work Package (WP) aims to reach and engage key research infrastructures, stakeholders at national and international level to ensure the sustainability of the project´s actions. More specifically, the objectives of this WP are:
- To have a comprehensive view of the developments and state of play of health information systems that monitor the wider effects of COVID-19 on population health at national level and international level
- To create a base for interdisciplinary population health research through exchange and support at national and international level
- To investigate routes for economic sustainability
- To support integration of knowledge generated from PHIRI into policy
Task 3.1 Mapping the state of play through (virtual) country visits
Task 3.1 aims to map the health information systems (HIS) that monitor the effects of COVID-19 on population health. This assesses the COVID-19 health information flows in countries through virtual country visits. The virtual country visits are carried out in selected European countries that are part of the PHIRI consortium. After attending a series of workshops, assessors from several countries will perform targeted interviews with key national players that process COVID-19 population health information. The following domains are covered: resources, indicators, data sources, data management, national HISs data quality/information products, and dissemination and use.
The assessments will be performed in Austria, Belgium, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway and Portugal by the end of 2022. Italy was assessed by Belgium in January 2022.

Task 3.2 Involving relevant COVID-19 national and international stakeholders
Through Stakeholder Meetings, PHIRI brings together and involve the relevant COVID-19 national and international stakeholders including, but not limited to European research networks in the domain of population health, relevant national population data owners/curators, national population health coordination entities and European and international data collectors and registries relevant for COVID-19 and future epidemics. The aim of these meetings is to bring together the different international COVID-19 projects, initiatives and organisations, to provide an overview of the activities carried out by these stakeholders and to delineate their relation to the activities of PHIRI.

Task 3.3: Integrate knowledge into health policies
Fostering translational research methodology is an important service of PHIRI. This task oversees and coordinates horizontally the policy activities in PHIRI to overcome siloed approaches in the different WPs. At the same time, it focuses on stimulating the integration of scientific evidence and research into the policy development process by delivering:
- One pagers describing the research outputs provided from each WPs
- Sustainability plan including the results from the country visits, the outcomes of PHIRI activities and the link with DIPoH and the sustainability of the Research Infrastructure
