Paediatric Rheumatology European Society (PRES)


PRES is a European scientific society for healthcare professionals in the field of paediatric rheumatology. Our mission is to:

  • Promote knowledge of paediatric rheumatic diseases
  • Stimulate research in this field
  • Disseminate knowledge through scientific meetings and publications
  • Provide guidelines and standards for good clinical practice
  • Provide guidelines and standards for the training of doctors and allied health professionals in the practice of paediatric rheumatology

Full membership is extended to individuals from all European countries, whether they are within the EU or not, and includes countries in the middle east. We also wellcome members from other parts of the world as associate members to enrich the collective experience and knowledge.

We welcome every practitioner/researcher in the field of paediatric rheumatology, irrespective of their background specialities. In fact, we positively encourage a mixed background, as these people are able to contribute from a different perspective.
