EULAR scientific training grants 

Following an EMEUNET proposal, EULAR awards training grants every year to applicants from European countries for clinical or laboratory work in a unit of another European country. The objective is to improve the standard of research and care and to foster collaboration across rheumatological, clinical and research units in Europe. Applicants who work predominantly in the field of rheumatology are eligible for training bursaries. Grants will not be made if the applicant is already abroad in training.

Long term grants: EULAR awards up to 10 training grants per submission deadline for stays of 1-6 months. The amount of the grant depends of the length of stay and equals EUR 1'000 for travel expenses plus EUR 1'000 per month of stay (maximum amount of EUR 7'000). Submission deadlines: every end of March and September.

EMEUNET Networking Platform of EULAR Centres of Excellence

EULAR collates a register of the top research centres in European rheumatology with a two-fold goal:

  1. To develop a group of first-class research centres for active researchers.
  2. To enable exchange of fellows' research projects.


Currently there are 31 top research centres in Europe approved as EULAR Centres of Excellence. This designation is valid for 5 years.

We have collated a list for our EMEUNET members containing the current EULAR Centres of Excellence

The information of the different centres is provided as summaries and links to forms with additional details. Contact details of country liaisons are also offered for further inquiries about country/centre.

There is also a list of Centres of Imaging on the EULAR website and other centres on the EMEUNET website.
