Networking Support Scheme (NSS)

The objective of the EJP-RD’s Networking Support Scheme (NSS) is to encourage the knowledge sharing on rare diseases and rare cancers between healthcare professionals, researchers and patients.

This call also aims to enable and/or increase the participation of traditionally under-represented European countries in new and existing research networks.

The programme will provide financial support to applicants to foster the organisation of workshops or conferences on new or existing/expanding research networks to strengthen collaborations and to enable the exchange of knowledge.

These workshops or conferences must focus on innovative research and solutions, and on strengthening collaborations between different stakeholders. The number of participants is not limited, but the maximum budget that can be requested is EUR 30 000.

The call for applications is open continuously. More information here:
