The European Joint Programme on Rare Diseases is a EU funded project that brings over 130 institutions (including all 24 ERNs)  from 35 countries to create a comprehensive, sustainable ecosystem allowing a virtuous circle between research, care and medical innovation. It aims to tackle challenges in the rare disease field to trigger the creation of an innovation pipeline “from bench to bedside” ensuring rapid translation of research results into clinical applications and uptake in healthcare for the benefit of patients.

TEDDY is actively involved in the project Communication and Dissemination actions as well as in the activities dedicated to the preparation and organisation of educational materials and initiatives for paediatric patients with chronic rare diseases. Annual Face to Face (F2F) will be organised on the themes of rare diseases to allow paediatric patients with rare diseases to get the right skills to be involved in research and make the difference in the experimental procedures.

European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure  intended to enhance technology-driven paediatric research in drug discovery and early development phases to be translated into clinical research and paediatric use of medicines.
