The 1st European Reference Networks (ERNs) Coordinators Group Meeting took place in Brussels, Belgium, on the 26th-27th of April 2017. The meeting was an initiative of the European Commission in order to set up the overall priority areas of the ERNs for 2017-2018. The meeting also addressed key issues concerning all the ERNs, including the monitoring process for the assessment of the ERNs, the cooperation and interaction of ERNs with the Board of Member States and national health systems, future calls for funding ERNs activities and legal issues, among many others. Moreover, a workshop entitled "Using standards and embedding good practices to promote interoperable data sharing in ERNs" was held during the meeting. With aim to achieve the full interoperability and compatibility of data and platforms, inside and beyond ERNs, the workshop presented various standards and tools as an inspirational guide to IT developers and ERN members. The workshop was co-hosted by RD-Action and the European Commission’s Directorate General for Health and Food Safety (DG SANTE). The 2nd ERNs Coordinators Group is scheduled to take place on June 2017.
