The purpose of the workshop is to assess the feasibility of establishing a European expert network for rare communicable diseases and other rare pathologies linked to mobility and globalisation and to evaluate the options for the creation of such expert network.

Workshop sessions have been organised in a participatory way, promoting the exchange of experiences, views and feedback from all the participants with the aim of reaching agreement on the feasibility of the network.

It is expected to:

1.       Identify the areas on rare pathologies in the context of mobility and globalisation where establishing a European expert network could be an added value

2.       To evaluate the feasibility of an EU expert network in those areas

3.       In case identified diseases are in the scope of an existing ERN, propose cross-linking mechanisms.
