European Joint Programme Rare Diseases network have announced new funding calls

The aim of the ‘ERN RD Training and Support Program‘ is to fill the gap in the available educational offer on rare diseases research by creating and implementing a comprehensive and cohesive training program for different target groups such as researchers and young clinicians working at institutions that are Full members or Affiliated partners of the European Reference Networks (ERNs).

The call is open from the 31st August until 12th October 2020

The goal of the workshops is to train researchers and clinicians affiliated to ERN-Full Members or – Affiliated Partners in relevant topics on rare diseases research. Training themes may include 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 call is open from the 1st October until the 13th November 2020

The call for Research Mobility Fellowships aims to financially support PhD students and medical doctors in training affiliated to ERN Full Members or ERN Affiliated Partners to undertake short scientific visits (secondments) fostering specialist research training outside their countries of residence and within one of the ERN host institutions. Applicants who will receive fellowships for Research Mobility should acquire at their host (secondment) institution new competences and knowledge related to their research on rare diseases and with benefit to their ERN.
