EFA representatives attended the 2022 Annual General Meeting of EU research project 3TR in Amsterdam on 12-13 October. EFA followed the programme for project updates, to provide input on key publications from the respiratory work package, and to guarantee prolific involvement of asthma and COPD patients in the research.

The highlight of the event was EFA’s participation in a patient roundtable with the cross-disease Patient Advisory Group (PAG) and several work package leaders to discuss improved patient involvement throughout the project. EFA also liaised with the European Lung Foundation (ELF) on future support for the project’s PAG in advancing on the action items from the roundtable. 

Following the meeting, EFA is looking forward to working with the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) PAG. The research team is currently developing the study design and protocol, aimed at further investigating the underlying pathophysiology of COPD, environmental triggers, and therapeutic response.
