The European Asthma Research and Innovation Partnership (EARIP) is a consortium that aims to identify key gaps in the foundational knowledge of asthma and to develop research and development (R&D) plans throughout Europe to address the gaps. The project activities range from basic cell science research, to assessing and improving European healthcare systems.


Supported by the European Commission, EARIP is a three-year consortium that aims to convene asthma experts from across Europe to define research gaps to reduce the impact of asthma. The consortium’s activities include workshops, prioritization exercises, consensus strategies, and development and publication of a set of recommendations for asthma research. The eventual goal is to have a comprehensive R&D roadmap for asthma.

EARIP will target a number of asthma research areas to ensure that a comprehensive overview of all current research strategies from across Europe is included in the project road map. These include the following:
