Dear Friends, dear Colleagues,

We are very pleased that in 2025, the next, 44th chapter of the European Workshop for Rheumatology Research (EWRR) will be organized again, ten years after our successul meeting in 2015, in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary.

The EWRR has been considered Europe’s premier meeting for basic and translational research in the field of rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs). Its primary aim is to attract young scientists and to give them the opportunity to present their work in an informal and interactive environment.

The series of EWRR started in 1981 and it still provides up-to-date information of basic mechanisms and advanced treatment of RMDs.

Our programme will contain nine major scientific sessions and six keynote lectures. The 27 state-of-the-art lectures and the keynotes will be delivered by some of the most renowned international researchers both inside and outside the field of rheumatology. Moreover, the programme will include short oral presentations of the most outstanding abstracts, as well as guided poster tours.

During the three event-packed days of EWRR 2025, there will be sufficient time for learning, as well as scientific and social networking.

EULAR has long been a supporter of the workshop by providing a number of bursaries. In addition, some EULAR Study Group meetings take place prior to the EWRR.

Finally, we thank pharmaceutical companies for offering an unconditioned support in order to keep organising fees relatively low. This would help young researchers, fellows and students to actively participate in EWRR 2025.

Budapest, the pearl of the Danube, the capital of Hungary, is a city of history, architecture, thermal spas, good food and wine. We are pleased to welcome you to the next exciting chapter of the EWRR saga.
