EURORDIS Summer School 2018 (11 – 15 June 2018 in Barcelona)
Patients are taking on ever increasing roles in advocating for medicines development, equal access to treatments across Europe and ensuring that medical information is clear, accurate and comprehensible. In order to help prepare them for these roles and as part of its commitment to empowering people living with rare diseases, EURORDIS launched the summer school in 2008. The programme allows patients and researchers to sharpen their advocacy skills and gain an understanding of the regulatory process of orphan medicinal products so that they are able to advocate at a European level.
The programme has online and face-to-face components. The face-to-face portion trains 40 expert patients annually as part of an intensive 4.5-day course held in Barcelona, Spain. Deadline for registration is 30.11.2017.
