Dear colleague

The IPCRG has been closely involved with this European project called EARIP  to define the priorities for asthma research funding by the European Union.

We encourage you to ensure primary care's voice is heard. Please complete the survey and also circulate it to colleagues including your national group. Details are below. Please note closing date 3 August 2015. We have circulated to all colleagues, not just those in Europe, because the questions are relevant for all.

Many thanks

Calling all asthma professionals: what topics should future research focus on?

A European Union-funded project is creating a new action plan to outline research priorities in the field of asthma.

The European Asthma Research and Innovation Partnership (EARIP) will produce the action plan to inform the European Commission about which areas require urgent funding. The project is calling on all healthcare professionals working in the asthma field to share their insights on a range of areas including services, diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, prevention and policy.

Complete the survey to share your thoughts:
