European Reference Networks

Networks

The first 24 ERNs were launched in 2017, involving more than 900 highly-specialised healthcare units from over 300 hospitals in 26 Member States.

Search tool

The ERN search tool presents information about the ERNs in a searchable way. The data concerned includes ERN names and details and ERN clinical centres names and details. You can look for the information from different points of views:

  • Who is member of a given ERN: select the ERN you are interested in, and the list of its members will appear, both as a list and as geo-referenced pins on the map;
  • Which clinical centres participate in the ERNs in a given country: select a country, or write directly its name, and the map will appear with the localization of the clinical centres which are members of ERNs;

There is a restricted area available for authorised users which is currently managed by the European Commission.
