EMEUNET – The Emerging EULAR Network
EMEUNET is an exciting community that started its activities in 2009, emanating from one of the objectives set by EULAR – "Bring on board high quality, young generation contributors in all EULAR activities".
This statement was seized upon as an opportunity to address educational needs and promote research interests of aspiring young academics through the creation and development of a Europe-wide network of young rheumatologists.
To achieve this, the committee organises a range of high-quality activities and programmes for its community.
