Supporting partners

Supporting partners are healthcare providers, medical societies, and any other entity or individual which, without having a commercial relation with the ERNs and their Members or Affiliated Partners, or with the European Commission, contribute in different ways to the work of the network. Supporting partners are not ERN members (/ representatives), Affiliated partners (/representatives) or Associate partner patient organisations (/ePAG advocates). Supporting Partners and ERNICA will sign a collaboration agreement, which outlines the specific areas for collaboration.

ERNICA is also open to engaging with the following patient groups/individuals as Supporting partners.

• Patient organisations registered in Europe that do not have a designated representative
• Patient organisations registered and operating outside of Europe
• Individual patients or family members
• Social media-based patient support groups
