ERICA GA & ERN Research Conference

11 – 13 December 2024

The ERICA 4th General Assembly & ERN Research Conference will take place from December 11th to December 13th, 2024 in Udine, Italy.

Hosted by MetabERN.

The aim of the ERICA consortium, in which all 24 European Reference Networks (ERNs) take part, is to build on the strength of the individual ERNs and create a platform that integrates all ERNs research and innovation capacity. ERICA Conference serves as a great opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ the active ERN research community, to present the research projects involving ERNs and to discuss the future of the ERN related Research.

We call all the stakeholders to think What is ERN research or what should be typical ERN research? We aim to define a corporate identity of ERN Research and to set the standards for the future RD Programs and the Clinical Research Network. With special attention to new ‘raising stars’ in ERN Research, who we encourage to reply to the Call and submit their Abstracts. Best ones will get the opportunity to present their posters during the conference, with the possibility to write a paper that will be published in an extra Supplemental issue of Current and Future of ERN Research in Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases.
