NextGEN ENETS Scientific Workshop 2024

The NextGEN ENETS Scientific Workshop in 2024 is designed to enable young PhD students, postdocs, and physicians in training (both clinicians and researchers) or at the start of their career to gain experience in preparing and orally presenting a scientific research project in front of an expert panel.

This workshop is the perfect setting for early-career scientists to discuss and present their research in English and respond to questions to a panel of internationally renowned NET experts. Furthermore, workshop participants will be trained and instructed by a designated person with exceptional skills in presentation techniques, who will provide personal feedback after each presentation.

An editor from the Journal of Neuroendocrinology, ENETS home journal, will outline the editor’s point of view to the trainees with respect to submitted manuscripts. Furthermore, a discussion will take place on the dos and don’ts of writing scientific manuscripts.

Prospective workshop attendees will need to apply for a grant. Grants will be awarded on the basis of scientific merit and will be evaluated by an independent Scientific Committee. Candidates should submit preliminary results from their ongoing scientific projects in the application (project proposals only will not be accepted). ENETS warmly welcomes applications from all enthusiastic next generation NET-dedicated scientists.

Submissions for the NextGEN ENETS Scientific Workshop 2024 are open from 26 April 2024 until 20 June 2024 (23:59 CEST).

Awardees will be notified about the Grant by the end of July 2024. Awardees will need to provide the ENETS Office with a valid ID card or passport (for identification and age verification) before any flights are booked.
