ELF is primarily interested in pan-European collaboration initiatives, with scope for improving the lives of people with respiratory conditions with tangible outcomes. Our goal in EU projects is twofold:

  • to facilitate and integrate patient involvement throughout the research process for the lifetime of the project
  • to communicate the aims and results of the project to patients and the public in lay language

ELF is motivated to involve patients in all stages of EU projects. Involvement of those with expertise in living with a condition in research study design, on ethics boards and patient input groups can help ensure that recruitment targets are met and that the patients taking part in research can have a positive experience, that real-world outcomes are achieved by the project, appropriate communication and dissemination of the project to key stakeholders outside of the respiratory professional community and a legacy for the project.

If you are interested in involving ELF in an EU project, please read through all of the information below and submit a proposal form to info@europeanlung.org
