About us

The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) is an association of clinicians, researchers and allied health professionals, dedicated to improving the health of people affcted by allergic diseases.
With nearly 10,000 members from 121 countries and over 50 National Allergy Societies, EAACI is the primary source of expertise in Europe for all aspects of allergy.

Allergic and immunologic diseases (such as asthma, rhinitis, eczema and occupational allergy, food and drug allergy, severe anaphylactic reactions, autoimmune disorders, and immunodeficiencies) represent current crippling or life threatening conditions, and are a cause of worldwide concern. Ever since its establishment in 1956 in Florence, EAACI’s mission is to provide the most efficient platform for scientific communication and education in the field of allergy and immunology, ultimately striving to ease the lives of patients suffering from these diseases.

In pursuit of our mission, we seek to accomplish the following aims:

  • Promoting basic and clinical research

  • Collecting, assessing and disseminating scientific information

  • Functioning as a scientific reference body for other scientific, health and political organisations

  • Encouraging and providing training and continuous education

  • Promoting good patient care in this important area of medicine


EAACI is a non-profit organisation. Income is derived from fees; congress and meetings profits are devoted to current activities, research and travel, awards, and initiatives of interest to members.
