International Summer School on Rare Disease Registries and FAIRification of Data

23 – 27 September 2019

The International Summer School on Rare Disease Registries and FAIRification of Data is a part of a series of training activities proposed by the European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases (EJP RD).

The Course is made up of 5 days of residential training organized by Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ISS) in close collaboration with, mainly, EJP RD task partners [LUMC & UoG (Endo-ERN), IOR (Bond-ERN), HSK (Metab-ERN), EURORDIS, ISCIII, LUMC, INSERM (RaDiCo), UMCG, DTL-Projects (EIXIR-NL), CNR (ELIXIR -IT), AMC].

ISS, has gained vast experience by organizing numerous courses focused on rare disease registries with the support of key partners. In particular since 2013 ISS has organized and hosted the “International Summer School on Rare Disease and Orphan Drug Registries” and since 2014 the “Bring Your Own Data To Link Rare Disease Registries”.

Registries are key resources in order to increase timely and accurate diagnosis, improve patients management, tailor treatments, facilitate clinical trials, support healthcare planning and speed up research.

This course is composed of two training modules:

  • The first module “Rare Disease Registries” starts on September 23 till September 25, 2019, during these three days participants will learn (a) what resources are needed for the establishment / maintenance of a high quality registry (b) the features of successful strategies to ensure (i) long-time sustainability of the registry, (ii) quality, (iii) legal and ethical issues in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and (iv) FAIR principles
  • The second module “FAIRification of data”, starts on September 26 till September 27, 2019 during these two days participants, working with IT-trainers, will make use case data FAIR. The potential of a FAIR registry, as the basis for cross resource questions, will be demonstrated by executing a query across the use cases that become FAIR. In this part a time slot will be allocated to discuss FAIR data management and FAIR project planning.

Closing date for registration is 20th June 2019
