ERS Presidential Summit on Research gaps, patient needs and innovative solutions: a forward look on lung health research
The objective of the Summit is to identify priority research topics that should be addressed at European level. In doing so, we will hear over the coming days from all stakeholders – medical professionals, patients, pharmaceutical industry, research funders and research policymakers. This approach builds on the work of previous Presidential Summits – which saw the European Respiratory Roadmap and a focus on health inequalities providing the background from which to tackle respiratory disease. The outcomes will be valuable to our Society in the coming months – as a basis for focusing our potential scientific and research activities and indeed as a basis for advocacy and discussion with the European Commission.
