One year ago, on March, 1st 2021 the European Rare Disease Research Coordination and Support Action (ERICA) started officially! 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.
It has been challenging year due to Covid circumstances, but nevertheless productive year with great start of the different WP-specific activities and their Expert Working Groups. Great work has been done by ERICA’s enthusiastic WP-leads/board members, supported by our very representative Advisory board https://erica-rd.eu/about/governance/
Thank you everyone who have contributed to that great start and hope to see you at the ERICA General Assembly 21-22th June 2022 in Bologna.
