EURORDIS Summer School
Since its launch in 2008, the EURORDIS Summer School on Medicines Research & Development has taken place every year in Barcelona.
The Summer School is made up of one week of face-to-face training (held in June in Barcelona) and the below online training modules, which are available online for free for anyone to use.
The training aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to become experts in medicines research and development. Over 20 EURORDIS Summer School trainers provide the training each year.
The EURORDIS Summer School training covers topics including: clinical trials methodology, clinical research, ethics in medicines development, regulatory affairs, health technology assessment and marketing authorisation.
In 2015, a new format was developed for the Summer School that combines training for both expert patients and researchers.
