ERS Congress 2020 update

Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted to announce that the European Respiratory Society (ERS) International Congress 2020 will still take place. It will be held on the 7-9 September and will be delivered virtually. This will allow the respiratory community to hear the latest developments in respiratory health, connect and share expertise in a safe and responsible, but also new and dynamic way. 

ELF is working hard to ensure that patients and patient organisations are still involved in the virtual Congress. We would like to hear your thoughts about what you would be most interested in during the virtual Congress so that we can plan activities to best suit the interests of the network.

If you are part of the ELF patient organisation network, please complete the survey to provide your input about patient activities during the Congress:

There will be no need for patient organisations to travel to Vienna, so we will no longer be providing travel bursaries.
