As the newly elected President of the European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology (EULAR), I am honoured to address you all and extend my warmest greetings. Since its founding in 1947, EULAR has been a shining example of excellence in the field of Rheumatology. It has achieved a respected and esteemed reputation of significant importance throughout Europe.
At the heart of EULAR's remarkable endeavours, the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology stands as our flagship event, delivering an unparalleled experience year after year. Our Congress brings together a vast network of patients, health professionals, rheumatologists and industry partners dedicated to highlighting the latest scientific breakthroughs in clinical, translational, and basic research. It serves as a platform for discussing new developments and management of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). Furthermore, the Congress focuses on bridging the gap between diagnosis and patient care and explores practical aspects of the rheumatology field through specialised workshops, presentations, and discussions.
