Why is this project important for the rare disease community?

Rare2030 prepares a better future for people living with a rare disease in Europe by using foresight. Foresight is a tool that provides us with different future scenarios and sets out road maps for how we can reach them through changes in policies and strategies so to better shape the future of the rare disease community. The health of 30 million people living with a rare disease in Europe should not be left to luck or chance.

4 main steps of Rare2030

  1. Knowledge base
    1. Establish a knowledge base by critically review existing knowledge and emerging issues through a literature review.
  2. Horizon scanning and scenario building
    1. Identify the major trends and drivers that may shape the future of rare disease policy.
    2. Identify a number of explorative future scenarios in which certain trends are more or less prioritized “What if….?”
  3. Back-casting and refining scenarios
    1. Vote on which are preferred and identify the normative policy options to get there “How do we get there by 2030?”
  4. Policy recommendations
    1. Translate the scenarios into policy recommendations that reflect all stakeholders needs via national meetings
