ERS and EU policy development

ERS: a trusted and valued source of information and advice for decision makers and officials.


In this section of the website you will find regular reports and updates on all ERS EU related activities. The EU institutions decide on policy and legislation in areas such as research, environment and public health for over 500 million people in 28 countries. Even if you are an ERS member from a non-EU country - EU polices may affect you. ERS therefore takes EU affairs very seriously and its dedicated office located in Brussels aims to:

  • Raise the profile of the respiratory diseases and the respiratory profession across Europe.
  • Shape European Union policies by engaging directly with policy makers.
  • Secure allocation of vital resources that can deliver better lung health.
  • Build coalitions on prevention, research, environment, tobacco control, public health, patients and specific disease areas.
