Edgar Stene Prize
Every year EULAR and the Standing Committee of PARE offer the Edgar Stene Prize for the best essay on a previously determined topic. The Stene Prize is EUR 2'000 and includes travel to the Annual EULAR Congress of that year with hotel accommodation for up to four nights as well as an invitation to attend the Opening Plenary Session and the Congress Dinner at the EULAR congress.
The national organisations of people with arthritis/rheumatism invite all people with RMDs in their countries to participate in the competition by writing and submitting an essay on the topic of the year. Essays may be written in any national language and should not exceed two typewritten pages. Persons who are professionally connected with rheumatology are excluded from the competition.
The best entry from each country will be submitted for the final decision made by the jury elected by the PARE Standing Committee.
