The eleventh edition of the EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards will take place online on Tuesday February 8, 2022. It will bring together people living with a rare disease, and other stakeholders. Nominations are now open and can be submitted from anywhere in the world.
Among all the nominations received, the EURORDIS Board of Directors will select the awardees in October 2021. EURORDIS has partnered with Orphanet for the evaluation of the Scientific Award nominations and with Medtech Europe for the Company Award for Health Technology.
A few finalists will be selected for the Young Patient Advocate Award and the Social Media Award, for which the winners will be determined by a public vote. The awardees will be presented with their awards at the official Ceremony next February, to mark the occasion of Rare Disease Day.
