The ERN Coordinators are getting ready for the challenges of enlarging the European Reference Networks

The ERN coordinators met in Brussels on the 25th March 2019 and addressed several key aspects of the networks' development. The main discussions focussed on the on-going designation by Member States of Affiliated partners, both from a procedural point of view and concerning the practical implication for the ERNs. Several topics were then addressed which are related to the growing operational activities and development of the networks: the use of the IT platforms (CPMS and ECP), the communication activities, the relations with industry, the monitoring, the research activities, education and training, and the support from different financial instruments.

The integration of the ERNs into the national health system is one of the current priorities, and the Working group on Integration was mandated to prepare a Board statement with recommendations to the Member States on ways to support the ERNs in their own country and integrate them within their national health system.
