eUROGEN is one of the 24 European Reference Networks (ERN) that are approved and funded by the European Union (EU). ERNs are an exciting new form of cooperation at European level between healthcare providers with specialised expertise with the aim of improving care for patients
with rare diseases or complex conditions. eUROGEN aims to improve diagnosis, create more equitable access to high-quality treatment and care for patients with rare urogenital diseases and complex conditions needing highly specialised surgery.
eUROGEN will train the next generation of surgeons to increase skill levels and improve outcomes. A priority will be transferring knowledge and training to the Member States with less expertise, thereby increasing the quality of surgical
outcomes for patients across Europe and reducing costs. Educational, training and research strategies will be developed together with patients and patient representatives involved in the relevant disease areas.
