Focus Groups
Focus Groups

During the latest meeting in Zurich (2016) 13 focus groups were identified with the aim to facilitate discussion and exchange of ideas on specific breath-related topics. During the upcoming meeting in Maastricht opportunities will be available to meet, discuss future plans, research progress, common studies and collaborations. Breath researchers and attendees are encouraged to participate in these focus groups and the chairs can be contacted to give input and ideas for the meeting in Maastricht.
