He coordinated the Follow-up Care committee that developed European Standards of Care for Newborn Health (European Foundation for the Care of Newborn Infants (EFCNI) newborn-health-standards project) and is member of the steering committee of Glance – Global Alliance for newborn care (https://www.glance-network.org/).
