The European Commission (EC) supports the improvement of health and healthcare across the European Union (EU). This is in part done by allocating funding for research and innovation to, amongst others, increase our understanding of specific medical conditions and to stimulate advances in diagnosis, prevention and treatment. However, some medical conditions fail to be sufficiently recognised, diagnosed, prevented or treated, and may therefore be under-researched. These conditions can however, pose a considerable burden on patients and society. The aim of the current study is to explore the definition, identification and research needs of high-burden under-researched medical conditions in the EU.
