Knowledge sharing and stimulating collaboration between health care professionals in European Reference Networks (ERN) is the aim of the ERN Exchange Programme 2021-2022, funded by the European Commission.

The objective of the ERN Exchange Programme is to palliate disparities in specific knowledge or gaps in expertise by facilitating the arrival of high-level expertise in a considerable number of diseases to a big number of Healthcare Providers that are members or affiliated to an ERN.

Starting in March 2021, up to 55 one-week visit packages are available to healthcare professionals from ERN-Skin member or Affiliated Partner centres over the coming two years.

The programme is open to clinicians and other groups of healthcare professionals and invites both junior trainees and senior experts. 

Ecorys Ltd provides services to all ERNs in the framework of the Exchange Programme of the European Commission.
