The virtual set-up has enabled many people to attend from their homes and to get a unique opportunity to gain knowledge from health care providers, experts and patient advocates. Designed by patients for patients this event will be a unique platform to discuss research, person-centred care, policy and advocacy around Pulmonary Fibrosis and Interstitial Lung Diseases (ILDs).

Established in 2016, the EU-IPFF has grown from a newly established association to a trusted resource for the European PF community, and is now the convener of the first virtual pan-European PF Summit.
