The EJP-RD ERN Research Training Workshops Call is now open!

The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases has launch the ERN Research Training Workshops funding opportunity. The goal of the proposed workshops should be to train researchers and clinicians affiliated to ERN- Full  Members or - Affiliated Partners in relevant topics on research in rare diseases. Training themes may include (but are not limited to) innovative research methodologies, diagnostic research methodologies, interdisciplinary treatment approaches, such as gene therapy and transplantation, etc. Moreover, the workshops will be aiming to provide a cross-ERN added value. The costs for the workshop organization will be covered up to a limit of € 25.000.   

The workshops will be delivered as two-day events. Topics can be proposed by clinicians/investigators affiliated to ERN-institutions or EJP RD beneficiaries.  As of 2021, there will be two deadlines for workshop topic applications per year, in January and June.   

Topics will be selected taking into consideration several elements such as:   

  • Addressing cross-cutting issues relevant for ERNs   
  • Multidisciplinary topics  
  • Fostering collaboration (within and between ERNs)   
  • No overlap with other EJP RD training activities
