Information about the CPMS


We are building a network of experts and patients for better care

MetabERN is a European non-profit network established by the EU to facilitate access to the best available care and address the needs across the border of all patients affected by any rare inherited metabolic disease (IMDs) and their families. MetabERN is driven by the principle of patient-centred care for the provision of its services aiming at improving the quality of life of patients and families.

MetabERN aims to connect the most specialised centres in the area of rare IMDs to promote prevention, accelerate diagnosis and improve standards of care across Europe for patients living with IMDs.
MetabERN is entirely patient and expert-led. Through the combination of patient experience and expert knowledge from across the EU, it captures the most innovative medical advances and tailors them to patients’ needs.
