The European Respiratory Society is hosting its 2014 Annual Presidential Summit in Rome, Italy on 2nd and 3rd of July. Started in 2010, this annual event aims to address and discuss pressing issues at the interface of science and policy. The objectives of the 2014 Summit are to:
- examine the various barriers to new medical products, from research to regulatory issues;
- and explore new ways to create a better environment for medicine development.
Under the Presidency of Professor Peter Barnes, the Summit this year moves to Rome on 2-3 July 2014, discussing how to create a better environment for better medicines.
ERS Presidential Summits are a forum for discussion in the interface between science and policy. Summits aim to provide a broad background from which to tackle respiratory disease – from the European Respiratory Roadmap, to a focus on health inequalities, and a discussion on research priorities.
This year’s event hosted speakers from a range of fields from policymakers to researchers and patients, coming together to discuss key issues in medicine development.
