Every other year, the EURORDIS Membership Meeting provides over 200 patients, patient organisations, policy makers and other stakeholders with networking opportunities and capacity-building workshops to improve the lives of those living with a rare disease.
The EURORDIS Membership Meeting workshops are designed to allow patients to develop the knowledge and ability to advance policies and services for rare disease patients in their country and local communities.
The EURORDIS Membership Meeting provides an opportunity for EURORDIS members to network, share best practices and increase knowledge of issues integral to member organisations and the rare disease community and environment in each member’s country.
EURORDIS Membership Meeting (EMM) 2023
The last EURORDIS Membership Meeting (EMM) took place in Stockholm, Sweden, from 25 to 27 May 2023. The event provided a platform to engaging and lively discussions on the road towards a holistic approach to addressing patient needs and ensuring their full inclusion in society, with much missed in-person opportunities for exchange.
The next EMM will take place in 2025.
