Every year, EULAR grants a set amount to its knowledge transfer programme. The programme is designed to support patient organisations that wish to further develop their skillset through applying lessons learned by other organisations in the EULAR network.

This knowledge transfer is mainly done through visiting an organisation in another country. The programme is open to EULAR member organisations of PARE, and to organisations with co-opted delegates in the Standing Committee of PARE.

The total amount available for this programme is EUR 15,000.00.

Organisations are asked to develop and submit project ideas that will contribute to the development of professional capabilities within the organisation itself.

The organisation is required to describe their ideas in detail in the application form. In order to share their findings, EULAR expects recipient organisations of a grant to provide a report after the stay, focusing on the results achieved.

To apply, send your completed application documents to the EULAR Secretariat by 10 November 2018 (23:59 CET) to alzbeta.goehmann@eular.org

For any questions regarding your project, or for help with filling in the application forms, please contact Alzbeta Göhmann at the EULAR Secretariat.
