EMEUNET — Emerging EULAR NETwork — was set up under the auspices of EULAR back in 2009, to move forward rheumatology education, mentoring and research in Europe, widening collaborations and integrating with EULAR activities.
Registered EMEUNET members are granted access to a searchable database of all members, allowing them to establish research collaborations and share information. Registered members also have the opportunity to take part in the network’s mentoring, educational and networking activities and may annually apply to working group membership, which has a broad representation within EULAR countries.
Two speakers at the meeting, TCD scientists Dr Lorna Gallagher and Dr Michelle Trenkmann, discussed the benefits of joining EMEUNET.
Speaking to the Medical Independent, Dr Gallagher said she had become involved in rheumatology in the past 18 months and joined EMEUNET “straight away, as the people I work with are very involved with it”.
“It is really good for networking, especially for someone like me who is coming into this area not knowing where to start, not knowing what I can get out of the area, and they do a lot of courses, including in Ireland, and it is under the branch of EULAR so some of its members get to sit in on EULAR sessions and learn how to be a bigger player and there is a cascade effect, as all this information is sent out to us as newsletters and in courses,” she explained.
