Evening Symposia

Important communication from ERS President

Read the message from our President Prof. Thierry Troosters regarding the ERS International Congress 2020.

We will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss the virtual congress and various opportunities we are planning to have available for you.

Organising an Industry Evening Symposium is the most impressive and efficient way to educate and stimulate a large audience. By offering cutting-edge science, revealing clinical data or examining case studies, organisers can add to the programme of the ERS International Congress and convey messages in a highly relevant environment.

Diversity and gender equality measures

Diversity and Gender Equality Measures within European Respiratory Society (ERS) In recognition of the importance of an appropriate diversity and gender representation, the ERS will implement certain measures to ensure that the operation of the society will offer equal opportunity to all of its members and contributors. Part of these measures will be the consideration of gender equality when selecting faculty for educational events. The ERS leadership and the ERS Congress Programme Committee would like to encourage all companies wishing to hold Industry organized symposia at the ERS Congress in Vienna, and at future Congresses, to consider an equal opportunities approach when selecting chairs and speakers for their events.
