lühikokkuvõte: This project aims at creating a set of tools intended to facilitate collaborations between academic teams, SMEs and even major companies, in the field of rare diseases (RD). These tools will contribute to building up a community of stakeholders with the ultimate goal of speeding up RD research and development, providing diagnostic tools and therapies as quickly as possible. The specific objectives are to: - identify expert groups in Europe, on-going funded research projects, technological platforms, databases and biobanks relevant to RD research and to release the information in a user-friendly manner on the existing Orphanet website. - identify, among research projects funded at the MS level and at the EU level, those which are in need of partnership with other academic teams and/or which have a potential for market development and may benefit from a partnership with Industry. - release the information on partnership opportunities on the existing OrphanXchange website and adapt the website to meet the needs of all the types of partnerships identified so far. - develop partner search facilities based on the above mentioned databases and on an ad-hoc basis. - develop an electronic newsletter informing the community about newly posted partnership requests and business opportunities. - organise two workshops with top experts to analyse areas in need of collaborative research projects. The new facilities will be developed from three existing RD websites previously funded through EC grants: - www.orphanplatform.org serving as a management tool and a follow-up tool between partners. - www.orphanXchange.org serving as a tool to facilitate partnership between academic researchers, Industry, and private companies - www.orpha.net providing information on on-going research activities in Europe. This project is based on input from four EU projects: Orphanet, OrphanPlatform, E-Rare (www.erare.eu) and the RD Task Force (www.rdtf.org).
