A unified approach to innovation is needed to address the challenge of asthma in Europe. It is the opinion of the EARIP consortium and associated members (comprising most asthma networks, societies and professional groups) that if all of these research priority areas were funded and the 15 research questions addressed, asthma outcomes would be transformed and avoidable use of healthcare systems eradicated, resulting in significant financial savings.
The realisation of this vision through coordinated efforts at a European level is the only way to achieve the change needed to reduce asthma deaths and hospitalisations and improve productivity and quality of life for people with asthma. Integral to this is maintaining and growing the networks established through EARIP professional societies, patient organisations and EU-funded programmes.
