About the Committee

Allergy, asthma and clinical immunology research has many challenges, including complex European regulations, funding opportunities, data gathering and overall quality control. To address these unmet needs, the newly formed EAACI Research and Outreach Committee (EAACI ROC) will develop an innovative research and knowledge exchange network, which will ensure the position of the EAACI as the global leader in promoting and supporting Research and Development.

- Facilitate allergy, asthma and clinical immunology research through the coordination and support of the research community.
- Support high quality and reproducible data by leveraging resources into a joint information exchange network while boosting top-notch experimental research through multicenter collaborations and strengthen the validity of the experimental medicine results.
- Deliver new forms of translation of key research findings, to better meet the needs of clinicians and more quickly develop precision approaches to improve and cure allergic disease and asthma.
- Facilitate basic and clinical research career development by expanding the funding opportunities for EAACI fellowships,  develop educational and training programmes on cutting edge research methodologies,
- Facilitate access of EAACI members to research funding opportunities
- Inform public policy on research priorities in allergic diseases and asthma via public engagement and outreach activities.
- Build an infrastructure that will monitor, analyse and interpret science and research data to identify trends, barriers and opportunities, and strategic imperatives, forecast needs and directions.


Research Agenda
We propose the following strategic research direction to be prioritised for EAACI funding and support:

1. Prevention of allergic diseases and asthma with a special focus on the developmental exposome
2. Environmental science
3. Real World Evidence. Registries. Health Economics
4. Human genetics, Omics, Big data. Artificial Intelligence. Mobile Health 
5. Drug development and biomedical engineering
6. Quality assessment
