Initial date01 Jan 2012
End date01 Apr 2022
The initiative is based on an online platform that allows user interaction thanks to a dynamic of information, training and participation that simulates a virtual social network environment. Users are grouped by private communities of families and physicians that work together to improve scientific knowledge of the disease and describe its natural history. The communities are also a place of support among families and physicians.
- 8 outcomes discovered.
- HINNOVAR/Novartis Award (2012).

The project has evolved to join the new Share4Rare platform, so the previous website is not currently operational.
