Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Respiratory Effectiveness Group (REG) announces with great pleasure the dates for the 8th REG Summit on March 16-18, 2023 which be held in Lisbon, Portugal, as a live event. 

In line with the REG’s purpose to promote real-life research in respiratory diseases and the improvement of patient care through the influence of guidelines with real-world evidence, the Scientific Programme Committee has developed a rich scientific programme, focusing on hot topics, cutting edge developments and controversial issues that can be meaningfully informed by real-life research.

By bringing together top experts in respiratory medicine, and structuring the meeting around debate and think-tank sessions, this event aims to provide the ideal ground for intellectual exchange and production of breakthrough ideas, among those passionate about understanding and treating respiratory diseases. It will be a highly educational experience complemented by ample networking and best-practice exchange opportunities.

Your active participation in the REG Summit 2023 will undoubtedly ensure a successful and productive meeting as we re-acquaint ourselves after this challenging period.

Looking forward to welcoming you in Lisbon!

With warm regards,

G. Walter Canonica
REG President
