About the summit

Join the conversation and be a part of something big.

Join us for the first European IPF Patient Summit on idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and interstitial lung diseases (ILDs). We will bring together patient groups, healthcare professionals and industry representatives to discuss research, person-centred care, policy and advocacy for IPF and ILDs. Patient-centricity is our priority. By moving beyond the traditional conference, we have put patients in the driving seat, in order to inspire greater alignment, shared objectives and truly meaningful meetings with high impact between patients, leading healthcare professionals and industry representatives.

The IPF Summit is now accredited!

The European IPF Patient Summit 2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education and the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology.

A word from our president

It is with immense pleasure that I invite you to Warsaw for the first European IPF Patient Summit. It is a great honour to be part of the first European IPF Patient Summit, whereby patient-centricity and involvement are the top priorities. We believe that patients need to be incorporated at every stage of research, from disease, to treatment, and throughout the care pathway.

The summit

From 24 to 26 April 2020Warsaw, Poland will be the heart of the European IPF community. The city was chosen as a symbol for building bridges: between Eastern and Western Europe, but also between patients and healthcare professionals, as well as policymakers and the industry representatives.

The Summit is open to the whole IPF community: patients and healthcare professionals, together with the academia, the industry, and government officials. Medical students, as well as early and experienced professionals alike, are also encouraged to participate.
