Future Annual ICORD Meetings

ICORD members and non-members are welcome to send their expression of interest to host future Annual ICORD Meetings to the secretariat, icord.karolinska@sll.se

ICORD arranges annual meetings on rare diseases and orphan drugs in different parts of the world together with local groups. The meetings provide a great opportunity to take part of and share the latest international updates in the field of rare diseases, to learn about the local/regional situation where the annual meeting is organised and to network with many different stakeholders, such as academia, patient groups, health care workers, health authorities and industry representatives.

The programmes of the annual meetings are put together by a committee representing different stakeholders from different regions of the world. The committee aims to create a programme that is of interest to both ICORD members coming from abroad and to the local participants. One important objective of the annual meetings is to create a platform for stakeholders to meet and exchange knowledge and best practices. ICORD will collaborate with Rare Diseases International (RDI) to organise the future annual meetings. Read more about the collaboration here.

The next ICORD international meeting will take place in Stockholm during the fall 2018. The specific dates will be announced soon.

Summaries and presentations from the past annual ICORD meetings can be found in the menu under Past Events. The China meeting presentations will be published soon.
