Platform of Data & Resources

Pillar 2 “innovative coordinated access to data and services for transformative RD research” aiming at rationalized, optimized and increased potential of existing resources and services, will develop a FAIR virtual platform for RD information encompassing research data, samples, tools and standards to support and accelerate rare diseases research. The usefulness of the developed tools and their upscaling will be ensured through the direct links with funded research projects (Pillar 1) and new connections across the rare diseases community in particular with European Reference Networks (ERNs). In addition, pilot and proof-of-concept projects will be put in place to enable multidisciplinary, holistic approaches for rare disease diagnostics and therapeutics and fostering creation of complete diseases pathways.
