EULAR Virtual Research Centre

About the Centre’s Mission

Founded in 2020, the EULAR Virtual Research Centre facilitates collaborative basic, clinical, and translational research to improve the lives of people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases.

The centre does this by providing a research roadmap as well as research resources, infrastructure, services, and training enabling high-quality, interdisciplinary rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease research.

To advance its mission, the centre also develops broad coalitions and partnerships at the local, national, and international level to integrate existing resources, support research that addresses the needs of people with rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases, and foster innovation in the field.
