After three very successful masterclasses in Brussels, Nice and the Hague, we are proud to continue this highly successful format with a fourth ESPID Research Masterclass (ERMC) in Thessaloniki Greece.
ESPID Research Masterclass (ERMC) is planned to be a closed, seminar type of forum for active pediatric infectious diseases (PID) research groups in Europe. The research can be bench type basic or translational research, clinical studies, epidemiological research or other studies in the area of pediatric infectious diseases.
Why: The primary aim of ERMC is to provide better opportunities for young researchers to present their studies and discuss their research with other junior colleagues as well as with European research group leaders. During the Masterclass, the junior researchers will be trained how to present their data and receive guidelines for scientific discussion in a seminar type of positive atmosphere. The second aim of the seminar is to provide the researchers a better view of recent PID research in Europe and also to stimulate discussions of new research collaborations among ESPID members.
To Whom: It is important to point out that this ERMC is based on attendance of research teams and not only individuals. The research groups should apply their attendance as a group of junior and senior researchers (maximum size of a group is 6 persons). At least one of the researchers in the group should be an ESPID member.
When: ERMC will take place in Thessaloniki on Saturday May 12th, 2012 from 08:30-18:00 and the teams are invited to stay the Saturday evening in Thessaloniki to participate in a dinner. The organizing team strongly encourages research groups to attend the whole ESPID Annual Meeting in Thessaloniki.
Financial support: Each accepted group will receive € 500 from ESPID for the participation of a maximum of two junior members (total € 1000). This amount should support travel costs and the cost of an overnight stay at a hotel. In addition, ESPID will waive the Meeting registration fee for all junior participants, providing that they are ESPID members. Senior members are expected to cover the costs of their attendance from their research budget.
