In 2017, HOPE organised its 36th Exchange Programme. The HOPE Agora 2017 took place in Dublin from Sunday 11 June to Tuesday 13 June 2017. The conference was organised by the Health Management Institute of Ireland.

The main topic of the HOPE Exchange Programme 2017 was “Organisational Innovation in Hospitals and Healthcare”. Organisational innovation is a broad topic that in the context of the Exchange Programme was intended as the implementation of a new method or process in relation to the use of new technologies, to health services provision, to human resources management and patients’ empowerment or involvement.
