Patent Abstract Sessions

For the first time ever the EAACI Congress 2018 will host a session on allergy innovations that are patented or in the process of being patented. Similar to research abstracts, scientific ideas and concepts will be presented and discussed. The session will display activities of the allergy-market and EAACI’s vision is that this platform will promote funding and support allergy patents, maybe even joint ventures. Risk capital managers as well as pharma industry representatives will be present in these sessions. Young researchers may also be inspired and think about their own patents or cooperation with innovative ideas. Come and visit this exciting new format and learn about allergy solutions of tomorrow!
