ERS – International congress 2016

The successful annual international congress 2016 of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) took place from 3 – 7 September in the UK. Cutting edge research was presented alongside informative educational sessions, ensuring that the Congress promoted new scientific knowledge, driven standards in the field and put a spotlight on respiratory medicine.

The launch of the ERS Healthy Lungs for Life ‘Breathe Clean Air’ campaign by ERS and another HEAL member, the European Lung Foundation (ELF), was a great success with in-depth scientific sessions on air pollution and public events gathering impressive crowds. The World Village brought together delegates from around the world and created a platform to build relationships and strengthen a growing international respiratory community.

The ERS international congress 2017 takes place next year in Milan.
