The EMEUNET Sub-Committee members will typically choose to lead/co-lead one of the many EMEUNET activities. These include social media plans, mentor-mentee meetings, the Ambassador programme, the Networking event, the postdoc mentoring program, the EULAR Reporters calls, the EMEUNET booth, the monthly EMEUNEWS, the call for EMEUNET representatives in EULAR task forces, monthly “What -is-new” selections, peer-review mentoring, the EMEUNET Podcast, Country Liaison activities, and liaison with the other EULAR committees. New ideas and improvements for existing activities are always very welcome!
