Motto of the European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products (ECRD)
The ECRD is the unique platform/forum across all rare diseases, across all European countries, bringing together all stakeholders – patients’ representatives, academics, health care professionals, industry, payers, regulators and policy makers.
It is a biennial event, providing the state-of-the-art of the rare disease environment, monitoring and benchmarking initiatives.
It covers research, development of new treatments, health care, social care, information, public health and support at European, International, national and regional levels.
It is synergistic with national and regional conferences, enhancing efforts of all stakeholders. There is no competition with them, but efforts are complementary, fully respecting initiatives of all.
