HarmonicSS is a private-public funded research project entitled HARMONIsation and integrative analysis of regional, national and international cohorts on Sjörgen's Syndrome (pSS) towards improved stratification, treatment and health policy-making disease.

EULAR PARE and the Sjörgen's Syndrome Foundation (SSF) have an advisory role in HarmonicSS and will continously monitor and evaluate the project (outcomes) in terms of impact on patients. EULAR PARE and SSF have a major role in the dissemination of the results to patient associations and the general public.

This is a ground-breaking pilot for EULAR to bring in the patient perspective via the EULAR Standing Committee of PARE.
