In 2024, the Croatian Health Insurance Fund, in cooperation with the Croatian Pension Insurance Institute, will preside over the European Forum of the Insurance against Accidents at Work and Occupational Diseases.

The activities of this independent European organization in the field of social security in Europe are focused on the promotion of health protection at work, and on the exchange of information and experiences among member organizations that are often facing the same challenges.

After the Finnish presidency and the conference held in Helsinki in 2023 with the topic Workers’ Compensations in a Changing World, the next conference of the European Forum will be held in Zagreb, from 4 until 6 June 2024, under the slogan Be fit for the digital age.

The conference is focused on the changes brought about by digital transformation. Under the motto 4e4 changes that bring value, the focus is on e-services, e-data, e-protection, and e-projects, with the emphasis on digital innovations supporting sustainability and green transition.

- exploring innovative solutions within projects, with the emphasis on AI for smart health and medicine;
