Upcoming Allergy Schools

These training courses focus on a specific topic within allergy and are built to offer a solid foundation in this area. They are therefore attractive to individuals who are new to the field, for fellows in training, EAACI Junior Members, as well as professionals with a specific interest in the chosen topic. Limited group sizes of around 120 international participants enable great dialogue throughout these typically three-day courses*.

  • Participants will be able to include the discussion of their work during the meeting to fine-tune/improve their own research projects
  • Form research networks with other researchers, increasing in this way their international contacts in the field
  • Be able to get in contact with experienced senior researchers
