New Horizon is an educational initiative comprising a network of European physicians and centres of excellence in rheumatology, whose aim is to “Promote excellence in information exchange, education, training and disease management in rheumatism and musculoskeletal diseases.” The purpose of the fellowship is to provide opportunities for young scientists from any country with an interest in rheumatism and musculoskeletal diseases to conduct a research project. The research projects should be undertaken at the facility of an EULAR Center of Excellence in Europe. The Fellowship of up to EUR 15.000 will be awarded to support a research project for a period of six months in one of the listed institutes. The New Horizon Fellowship is open to fellows from rheumatology and orthopaedic centres from any country. Applicants must have a degree in medicine and some specialty training in rheumatology, musculoskeletal medicine, orthopaedic surgery or acute/chronic pain management. Application deadline: September 30, 2019

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.
