FOREUM Foundation for Research in Rheumatology

is devoted to promote research in rheumatic and musculoskeletal diseases (RMDs) as an independent research funding body in rheumatology research. 

Basic and applied research of highest quality will be supported to reduce the burden of disease for people with RMDs.


Apply now - call for research proposals on Ageing in RMDs

The call is open for letters of intent to be submitted by 7th January 2017.



FOREUM will not only support rheumatology research in Europe, it will also constitute a forum for deliberations on the future rheumatology research arena by virtue of the discussions of its committees on future research calls.

Whereas FOREUM will define its strategic goals and operations independently, the intention is that it will coordinate its research activities with EULAR in order to avoid unnecessary overlap or otherwise inefficient deployment of precious research resources.
