ECRD is a biennial event that has allowed the rare disease community to gather since 2001 to monitor and benchmark relevant initiatives, drive the policy framework around rare disease diagnosis, treatment and care and empower the rare disease community to drive change where it is needed most. Outputs from these conferences have informed national and local policy initiatives and are referenced in decision-making around the provision of services for the community.

The overarching theme for this conference is The rare disease patient journey in 2030. 

The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases serves as official partner of the conference and VASCERN is proud to be an Associate Partner of this event.

Submissions for poster abstracts are open until February 10th, 2020. More information here.

Applications for the Patient Advocate Fellowship Programme are open until December 2nd, 2019. More information here.
