The Programme Mattone Internazionale Salute (ProMIS) has been institutionalised on the basis of the proposal of the Ministry of Health during the State-Regions Conference on the 29th of July 2015. It represents the natural evolution of the Project Mattone Internazionale (PMI), created to respond to the need to bring the Regions’ healthcare systems in Europe and, on the other hand, to bring Europe in the Italian Regions’ Healthcare Systems.
Over the years, training and information activities dedicated to the competent ministerial structures, Italian Regions and Health Authorities, as well as to other stakeholders involved in healthcare contexts, have been carried out in order to promote the dissemination on the national territory of EU policies and the possibilities of access to European and international programmes for healthcare, research and innovation.
In 2015, the Mattone Internazionale Project became a permanent structure to support the Regions and Autonomous Provinces in their internationalisation processes, reintroducing itself under the name of Programma Mattone Internazionale Salute (ProMIS).
In this new institutional guise, ProMIS takes on the task of consolidating the results achieved by the PMI, giving continuity to an innovative ‘governance’ model tested since 2011 and proven effective in its multiple applications.
By ensuring the full involvement of the various healthcare actors, the model has:
● Demonstrated to offer full involvement of the various healthcare actors
● Enabled the dissemination of project methodologies and developed proposals of regional interest, disseminating their results
● Established a serious and in-depth training and dissemination methodology for project techniques and networking, which is the basis of the European programming and of which the project itself has been the node, fostering international research initiatives in the field of public health
The activities of ProMIS formally started in May 2016, with the conclusion of the first three-year term (2016-2019) in December 2019 and the start of the second term (2020-2022) approved during the session of the Permanent Conference for Relations between the State, the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces of the 6th of June 2019.
In the session of the Permanent Conference for relations between the State, the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces on the 28th of December 2022, the ProMIS funding has been renewed for the third three-year term 2023-2025.
