Don’t miss your chance to nominate your star of the rare disease community, or enter yourself, for one of the EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards 2022.
The 12 award categories recognise the outstanding efforts of individuals, organisations, companies, researchers, scientists, media, and policy makers in bringing about change to improve the lives of the 30 million people in Europe and 300 million worldwide living with a rare disease.
Nominations 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.
