EMBARC is organizing this conference in cooperation with PROGNOSIS, the German Bronchiectasis Registry, and BREATH, the Hannover site of the German Center for Lung Research (DZL).

There has been a surge in interest in bronchiectasis in recent years and investigators around the world are now starting to join forces to drive forward and make substantial progress in the understanding and treatment of this disease.

At this conference up to 30 international leaders in the field of bronchiectasis will give presentations to an expected audience of up to 300 delegates, including scientists, medical practitioners, early-stage researchers and students. Poster sessions and social events will provide participants with ample opportunities for discussions and networking.

We are very much looking forward to your registration as well as your poster and presentation abstracts, and to welcoming you in Hannover’s newly restored historical Herrenhausen Palace, surrounded by its beautiful baroque gardens.
