The ECRD is recognised globally as the largest, patient-led rare disease event in which collaborative dialogue, learning and conversation takes place, forming the groundwork to shape future rare disease policies.
Leading, inspiring and engaging all stakeholders to take action, the Conference is an unrivalled opportunity to network and exchange invaluable knowledge with all stakeholders in the rare disease community – patient representatives, policy makers, researchers, clinicians, industry representatives, payers and regulators.
The next ECRD will take place fully online from 27 June until 1st July 2022.
Last year, over 1500 participants convened to the ECRD 2020, from 57 countries – representing all stakeholders – to place rare diseases in the spotlight during this two day online conference. The event provided the opportunity to co-design policy options today that can lead to better conditions for people living with rare diseases for the years ahead. ECRD attendees spent the course of the conference laying the foundation of these preparations and all of you are invited to continue your involvement in Rare 2030 throughout the year!
