COPD Conferences have always been committed to recognising those individuals who have made an outstanding contribution in the field of COPD. In 2006 the first ‘Lifetime Achievement Awards’ were presented in conjunction with Boehringer Ingelheim.
The tradition has been continued with 2 or 3 awards made by COPD Conferences at each subsequent biennial conference. Following the awards in 2010 it was decided that a COPD Hall of Fame should be established to which all past, and future, awardees will be admitted.
