Join the EURORDIS Round Table of Companies

The EURORDIS Round Table of Companies (ERTC) fosters a long-term educational relationship and a constructive dialogue between EURORDIS and companies addressing rare diseases. Through the ERTC, EURORDIS works with the corporate health sector to share its expertise engaging public and private institutions involved in the rare disease and orphan drug fields.


“For a company new to this space in Europe, we were eager to learn about the developments occurring with patient registries and data sharing. Having representation from industry and patient groups added a great dynamic to the discussions, further showing the value of such dialogue between different players.”

Membership in the ERTC

The ERTC is EURORDIS’ primary way of engaging with the corporate health sector. Membership in the ERTC provides a neutral forum for health sector companies committed to understanding patient perspectives, and willing to tackle issues shaping care and access to treatment for rare diseases. To enable better lives and cures for people living with a rare disease, EURORDIS actively convenes all relevant stakeholders, including the private sector which plays an important role in the present and future conversations and responses to rare diseases.

Discussions in the ERTC mainly take place at biannual ERTC workshops, bringing together companies, patient advocates, experts and public officials. Workshop themes and topics are structured by EURORDIS to address the concerns of patient organisations as well as institutional and practical barriers to treatment and care.

Recent ERTC workshops have covered topics such as improving patient access to rare disease therapies, patient engagement in the life-cycle of medicines, repurposing, newborn screening and the Pharmaceutical Strategy for Europe.

Companies interested in the challenging field of rare diseases are invited to become members of the EURORDIS Round Table of Companies.
