20 February, 2018 – Le Plaza Hotel, Brussels

The EURORDIS Black Pearl Awards is an annual event held in Brussels to recognise the outstanding achievements and exceptional work of people making a difference for the rare disease community.

Taking place in February to mark the occasion of Rare Disease Day, this event celebrates the inspirational qualities of people living with a rare disease along with those who go that extra mile to make a difference to their lives.

The black pearl symbolises these unique individuals, organisations and companies who demonstrate an incredible combination of hard work and dedication in their daily lives.

The nomination process for the Awards opens to the public in September 2017.
