EAACI Epidemiology Interest Group (IG)

Although a lot of the ongoing work and research represented within the EAACI Sections, IGs and the annual conferences is related to epidemiology, there has so far not been an official voice within the organisation for those who have a particular interest in population-based studies and clinical trials.
We therefore launched the EAACI Epidemiology Interest Group, following acceptance by the Executive Committee.

The main aims of our IG are:
-    to raise the profile of population-based studies as well as clinical trials through dedicated epidemiology-related sessions during the annual EAACI Congress.
-    to organise educational activities on study methodology and statistics to help improve the quality of epidemiological studies.
-    to foster research collaborations between epidemiologists in the allergy field across Europe, and
-    to plan and organise surveys, registries, population-based studies and clinical trials in the context of EAACI, supported by links between us and other IGs and Sections.

We encourage the EAACI membership to contribute to the activities of our IG, to join our educational activities and to gain experience in the field of epidemiology.

We are keen to collaborate with other IGs and Sections on joint projects and look forward to hearing from you.
