Allergies are the most prevalent chronic diseases in Europe with a >20% frequency. Allergic diseases to airborne allergens have been steadily increasing over the past few decades and an end of this increase is not in sight. Especially the younger generations show a higher incidence of allergic diseases. Thus, by the year 2040, more than 40% of the population will present an allergic predisposition in Europe.
The reasons for this steady increase are unclear. The Interest Group Aerobiology and Air Pollution of the EAACI (European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology) is organizing a workshop to inform stakeholders about the ongoing and future developments in allergy research in Europe to
increase the public awareness for this ongoing epidemic.
