Networking Support Scheme

A Networking Support Scheme (NSS) is implemented to encourage sharing of knowledge on rare diseases and/or rare cancers of healthcare professionals, researchers, and patient advocacy organizations. The NSS will provide financial support to third parties:

  • to foster the organization of workshops or conferences to support new research networks or strengthening existing research networks


  • to enable exchange of knowledge

It is expected that these new or improved networks may lead to future collaborative research efforts.

The Call for NSS proposals will open before the end of the year (2019).

The Call for NSS proposals will be continuously open through the next years (2020, 2021, and 2022) and collections of the proposals will be every #3 months starting March 2020 (TBC).
