Save the date - Dutch Lung Congress 2021
On the 17th and 18th of June 2021 the NRS, in collaboration with the NVALT and Lung foundation Netherlands, will organize the Dutch Lung Congress. This meeting will build on the success of the scientific collaboration within the former annual lung meeting (Longdagen). The Dutch Lung Congress aims to facilitate updating the field about lung science, to cross fertilize science opportunities in the Netherlands, and to stimulate networking. It will provide an opportunity to bring together everyone interested in lung science: basic and translational researchers, clinical researchers, patients, carers, industry, policy makers, etc.
This year the Dutch Lung Congress will be organized as a hybrid meeting with 50 persons on site at the location in Utrecht on the first day and 50 others on the location the second day. Everyone will be able to join digitally when they are not onsite in Utrecht. There will be a session on the NPL (Dutch National Programme for Respiratory Research), providing an update on the progress of the projects that evolved from the activities during the first round and on the second phase of the NPL. The science presented by the participants from submitted abstracts will be another highlight of the meeting. The best abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation, the others will be presented as a digital poster with interactive discussion. The deadline for abstract submission is the 30th of April 23.59 h. Also, there will be multiple awards relating to the presentations. The platform for the meeting will also facilitate individual networking between participants in a virtual coffee room. Please keep an eye on the website of the NRS for the opening of the registration and abstract submission and further details which will be available soon. We are looking forward to seeing you in June for great scientific discussions and networking.
