Successful Annual Meeting in Germany

On 20 and 21 November 2018 the APPROACH consortium gathered for its Annual Meeting, this year organized by partner Merck KGaA at their headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany.

In total about 60 participants of the meeting, including the project’s Patient Council and the Scientific Advisory Board, presented the achievements and project progress of the last 12 months and the plans for the upcoming year. Project members will meet again in May 2019, at the OARSI 2019 World Congress in Toronto, Canada.
