Research Seminars

About

Research Seminars gather a small number (20 to 100) of well-established and preferably young investigators to address scientific topics in depth and help break new ground. Research Seminars take place over two days in easy-to-reach European cities. They are scientific Seminars involving recently published work and research in progress. Participation is fully supported by the budget granted by the ERS.



ERS Summit on bridging the health divide in Europe

The aim of the summit was to follow on from goals set out in the Tallinn charter. The event allowed healthcare stakeholders to exchange experiences on the best ways to deal with health inequalities. The gap in healthcare is particularly prominent for respiratory diseases. Social inequality causes a higher proportion of deaths in respiratory disease than in any other diseases. It is associated with social inequalities in all age-groups, particularly in children and prevention of respiratory infections could make a major contribution to reducing health inequalities.
