The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) is developing the EU Platform on Rare Diseases Registration. An important component of the Platform is the Central Registry of the Network for the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE), which was recently transferred to the JRC.

The Annual Plenary Meeting of the SCPE was organised by the JRC from 16th to 18th October 2017. A significant part of the programme was devoted to the discussion of indicators for measuring public health impact of cerebral palsy.
