The EURORDIS Digital School on Social & Digital Media is a fully online programme, composed of webinars and e-learning courses, available for free.

The EURORDIS Digital School aims to empower rare disease patient advocates to use digital communication tools to improve the strategic outreach and community-building capacities of their organisations. The training objectives range from understanding digital landscapes to learning about creating empowered communities, building effective channels and reaching the right people. The trainers include social and digital media experts as well as representatives of patient organisations with invaluable experience in digital media. The pilot edition of EURORDIS Digital School took place in 2019, at the Ågrenska Resource Centre for Rare Diseases, in Gothenburg. The training was then converted into a fully online programme.
