During 1996 Copenhagen has the honour of being Cultural Capital of Europe. We envisage that both Anniversaries will be celebrated with academic pride and cultural pleasure.
The Flying Trunk from the adventure of Hans Christins Andersen illustrates the connecting point between culture, psychology and informatics/telematics, which in combination constitute the competing edge of European Health Informatics Industries.
