The EULAR PAED Community 

Paediatric Rheumatology is especially concerned with the care and understanding of a broad spectrum of autoimmune and auto-inflammatory diseases affecting children and young people. 
These are characterised by systemic inflammation and inflammation within the musculoskeletal system, skin, blood vessels and diverse organs such as the eye, brain and visceral organs. Non-inflammatory musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction syndromes are an integral part of the scope of Paediatric Rheumatology.

The committee organises a range of high-quality activities and programmes for its community dedicated to advance the care and improve the health and well-being of children and young people with rheumatic conditions.

EULAR PAED Committee



The EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology


The EULAR Paediatric Rheumatology sessions in the  scientific programme  at the EULAR European Congress of Rheumatology attracts a broad community who use their acquired knowledge to educate and influence a wide range of stakeholders about rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) in children and young people.

We encourage the  submission of abstracts  in paediatric rheumatology. 

Every year EULAR awards a number of  bursaries  to the presenting author for an abstract accepted for oral or poster presentation at the congress.


With the Research Webinar Series you'll gain access to valuable knowledge shared by leading experts, healthcare professionals, and individuals with firsthand experience in paediatric care. 



Each episode of PAED Podcast brings together leading experts, physicians, researchers, and individuals with paediatric rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) to share their knowledge, experiences, and perspectives. 


The PAED Newsletter is the main information channel for the PAED Community, featuring the latest developments in paediatric rheumatology and EULAR Initiatives   ​
