What is the EJP RD ?
The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD) is a 5 years programme co-funded by the European Commission that brings over 130 institutions from 35 countries to improve the integration, the efficacy, the production and the social impact of research on RD. EJP RD fosters the development, demonstration and promotion of Europe/world-wide sharing of research and clinical data, resources and know-how. Furthermore, it will implement and expand an efficient model of financial support for all types of research on RD (fundamental, clinical, epidemiological, social, economic, health service) coupled with accelerated exploitation of research results for benefit of patients. Find out more about our actions HERE.
On the 30th and 31st of January EJP RD held its operational Kick-Off meeting.
It was the opportunity to talk about the project and our common goals.
We also took some pictures, including one for the Rare Disease Day!
