EULAR Public Affairs: Activities and events

As part of its public engagement activities, EULAR organises a number of activities and events each year. The aim is to bring together policy makers, the RMD community and other key stakeholders to discuss on specific topics of issues affecting people with RMD (and other chronic conditions).

EULAR has run the Secretariat of the European Parliament Interest Group on Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (2009-2014), organises an annual conference in Brussels around World Arthritis Day on 12 October (such as the EU Presidency conference with the Belgian EU Presidency in 2010 and with the Hungarian EU Presidency in 2011).

EULAR has also organised workshops and conferences, some of them in collaboration with key stakeholders.
