Welcome from the chairmen


30th JUNE – 3rd JULY 2021

Dear Colleagues and Partners,

After careful consideration, we have made the very difficult decision to switch the 2nd European NTM & Bronchiectasis Workshop to a virtual format.

Although we were very much looking forward to welcoming everyone in Milan, we feel that not everyone is confident in travelling despite the start of delivery of vaccines and health and safety remains our main goal.

The dates have slightly changed as we have added an additional day and following the path opened by its first edition in 2019, this second workshop will give the opportunity to go deeper in the discussion and analysis of the different diagnostic techniques, the role of new drugs and the optimal management of these two important diseases providing a common evidence-based knowledge background to be developed further by participants in their daily practice.

The workshop is conceived to provide to Specialists in Respiratory Medicine, Infectious diseases and Internal Medicine, with evidence-based data on:

  • Physiopathology and etiology
  • Recommendation and real-life case to make the correct diagnosis
  • Available treatments and future perspectives
  • Overall management of the pathology

for Non NTM-PD and Bronchiectasis.

Special attention is also provided to discuss the impact of bronchiectasis and NTM in Cystic Fibrosis management and Lung Transplant contest.

The education contents developed could be of high interest also for other specialists as Microbiologists, Radiologists, Paediatricians, Specialized Nurses and Physiotherapists working with patients attainted by Bronchiectasis or NTM Lung Disease.


The workshop will host 2 calls which give to all the participants different opportunities to became protagonist of the initiative:

  • Submit your Abstract and share your work with Fellow Professionals, Researchers and Key Opinion Leaders.

All the abstracts will be presented and evaluated in the form of Poster during a Dedicated Session with the participation of the forum Chairmen.

  • If you are a young clinician/researcher don’t miss the Rising Stars call: you will have the opportunity to present your valuable work for the first time and receive the kind advise of the Chairmen.

We will work hard to provide everyone with a virtual experience that will enable attendees to still connect and access the latest research through a new format and we hope you will join us.

Your Sincerely
