FOREUM International Fellowships
- Entitat convocant:
- FOREUM (Foundation for Research of Rheumatology)
- Termini FSJD:
FOREUM is committed to funding and promoting scientific research into rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMD) and has a goal to foster links between rheumatology units in different countries. Consistent with these goals is the establishment of a call for international fellowships that have the specific objective of facilitating the development of research capacity and training high-calibre applicants in RMD research.
The call stimulates applicants conducting a research project in the field of RMDs in a host centre of choice for a period of 12 months. During this time the fellow will be mentored and trained in specific techniques, models or patient data by the team of the host centre that is required to successfully conduct the project.
The applicant must be a rheumatologist, rheumatologist in training or health professional in rheumatology, who is appropriately linked to RMD research in one of the EULAR member countries. It is anticipated that applicants develop long-term research and clinical interest in the area of the proposal that provides benefit for the fellow, the European RMD research community and patients with RMDs.
The host centre needs to have a high-level research profile in the field allowing the fellow to be exposed to cutting-edge research technology and an inspiring collaborative scientific environment. The host centre needs to be in a EULAR (European Alliance of Associations for Rheumatology) member country different from the country of the applicants' home centre.
Participation of patient research partners from the host centre is strongly encouraged in order to underline the importance of the project for the patients.
