In cooperation with other clinical departments and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Lung Vascular Research, the Clinical Department for Lung Diseases of the University Hospital for Internal Medicine at the LKH University Hospital / Medical University Graz, under the direction of Prof. Horst Olschewski, was officially announced as a new affiliate partner in the European reference network for rare lung diseases (ERN-LUNG).

European Reference Networks (ERN) are cross-border virtual networks of centers of expertise and healthcare providers. The goal of these networks is to provide improved access to high quality diagnostics, care and treatment by pooling knowledge and experience, medical research and education, as well as other resources in the field of rare diseases or rare complex conditions.
