Together we can accelerate a medical breakthrough in lung research. 

LONGFONDS | Accelerate is an international research program in which renowned scientists, academic pioneers, doctors, lung patients and social partners work closely together with one goal in mind: speeding up a medical breakthrough. The urgency of achieving this medical breakthrough is enormous: in the Netherlands alone, 1,2 million people have been diagnosed with asthma or COPD and this number is increasing rapidly. Lung diseases are not always visible, but have a huge impact on people and society.

Lung Foundation Netherlands is the initiator, director and financier of this international collaboration between top institutions. The first crucial step was to join forces with top institutions and for the international jury to select the most ground-breaking research with the most potential. The next step is the joining of private and societal partners. 

We invite you to join us in taking the next crucial step. Let’s write history together.
