European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases: EJP RD

The EJP RD is a programme aiming to create an effective rare diseases research ecosystem for progress, innovation and for the benefit of everyone with a rare disease. We support rare diseases stakeholders by funding research, bringing together data resources & tools, providing dedicated training courses, and translating high-quality research into effective treatments.

It brings together over 130 institutions (including all 24 ERNs) from 35 countries to create a comprehensive, sustainable ecosystem allowing a virtuous circle between research, care and medical innovation.

EJP RD provide funding opportunities, a guide for patients in research, a research translation support office, a clinical studies support office, and ethics and regulatory advice.  They also have a resource map showing coordinated access to data and services.
