EULAR PARE: Knowledge Transfer Programme (KTP)

Every year, EULAR grants funding to the Knowledge Transfer Programme which enables national PARE organisations to improve and apply skills by learning from the experience of other organisations in the EULAR network.


It helps to develop professional capacities within the organisation, stimulates innovation, knowledge and experience exchange between the national PARE organisations. The knowledge transfer can be done by mutual visits or by virtual meetings and sharing and discussing relevant documents. 

Objectives: With the investment into the Knowledge Transfer Programme, EULAR wants to support PARE organisations in their growth, to make them stronger and innovative, so they can better serve the needs of people with RMDs across Europe.

Benefits: By successfully completing a project, your organisation will

  • have strengthened its partnership with the partner organisation(s)
  • learn how to implement the lessons learnt and how to achieve the aims and objectives of the project and translate it into enhanced organisational capacities
  • be able to apply the gained knowledge in the organisation and/or the branches of the organisation
  • be able to teach the gained knowledge to other members / staff of the organisation

Eligibility: The programme is open for applications to National PARE organisations and for the EULAR Scientific Affiliates. Preference will be given to project applications which actively involve people with rheumatic diseases.
