    The third edition of EJP-RD's  ‘ERN RD Training and Support Program‘ has been announced! The aim of this program is to fill the gap in the available educational offer on rare diseases research by creating and implementing a comprehensive and cohesive training program for different target groups such as researchers and young clinicians working at institutions that are Full Members or Affiliated Partners of the European Reference Networks (ERNs). 

    To this end, two main training elements will be delivered: 

    1. Research Training Workshops - now open for applications until March 7th, 2021
    2. Research Mobility Fellowships for secondments outside the home country - to open in February 2021

    For all information on these two calls (including call texts and application forms), visit the EJP-RD page here

    The EJP RD Research Mobility Fellowships funding opportunity is open! The call aims to support PhD students, Postdocs and medical doctors in training to undertake scientific visits fostering specialist research training outside their countries of residence.

    The exchange can be carried out within the same ERN (Full Members and Affiliated Partners), between different ERNs (Full Members and Affiliated Partners) and between ERN Full Members / Affiliated Partners and non-ERN institutions.

    Either home or host (secondment) institution must be a Full Member or Affiliated Partner of an ERN at the time when the application is submitted, as well as during the proposed period of the training stay.

    Successful applicants should acquire new competences and knowledge related to their research on rare diseases, with a defined research plan and demonstrable benefit to the ERN of the home and/or host institution.

    The research mobility fellowships are meant to cover stays of 4 weeks to 6 months duration.
