This ICRS / OARSI joint meeting aims to promote insights into osteoarthritis and joint tissue regeneration through an interdisciplinary summit focused on the wound healing paradigm. We plan to include speakers from various disciplines, and in particular, researchers in wound healing for which the wound-healing paradigm is most well developed. This is expected to spur advances in understanding cartilage repair and osteoarthritis and create valuable societal collaborations between ICRS and OARSI. This is a new challenge for both societies but I believe this is a way to increase visibility, encourage cross-pollination with ideas and supports the identity of the ICRS and OARSI without endangering the independence or identity.
