8th European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products

8th European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products
Thursday, May 26, 2016

The 8th year of European Conference on Rare Diseases & Orphan Products will take place at the EICC, Scotland, UK on 26-28 May 2016. This biennial conference is a unique opportunity to come together and exchange: it is the event at which to connect and share with all other members of the rare disease community.

The ECRD is the only event which, from its small beginnings, has united all rare disease stakeholders from all European nations- patients and patient representatives, healthcare professionals and researchers, industry, payers, regulators and policy makers alike- in the fight against rare diseases. The ECRD now brings together over 80 speakers and more than 800 participants, covering six themes of content over two days: from the latest research, to developments in new treatments, to innovations in healthcare, social care and support at the European, national and regional levels. New meeting formats to enhance the on-site learning experience will be showcased for the first time in Edinburgh and will include a speed networking session to connect patients, researchers and industry, an open-house “soap box” lunch session, interactive roundtables, audience polling, networking lunches / coffee breaks and dedicated poster sessions.

The focus in 2016 will be on Game Changers in Rare Diseases. We will also be holding pre-conference tutorials, which will ensure that you are equipped to learn as much as possible from the conference.

E-Rare is glad to be an associate partner of this event.

The call for poster abstracts is now open.
