About Young Public Health in Europe | Winter Meeting

In the last couple of years there has been a growing focus on scientific sessions during EuroNet's meetings. In line with that trend, the Portuguese team proposed to host the next EuroNet winter meeting as a Scientific Congress. We are preparing an event that will gather public health professionals with different expertise that will share with us their experiences, views and challenges in 3 main sessions and in a set of several workshops.

For now we would like to let you know that our sessions will focus on 3 main topics:
Data and knowledge;
Public Health Training;
Smart Cities.

The workshop opportunities will range from the major key players in global health to high impact communication and the inside of an epidemiologist' mind, among many others. And we will have the EuroNet General Assembly and Working Groups. More to be shared very soon.

And, of course, in one of the trendiest cities in Europe right now, you will also be very well served with the social program we are preparing for you.

The meeting will take place from November 30th to December 3rd, in the beautiful city of Lisbon, Portugal. During the first two days we will have the scientific sessions, on the morning of the third day, we will have the EuroNet General Assembly and during the remaining time there will be touristic tours.

There is one catch... Spots are limited and registration is now open.
For only 25€ you will have access to all the scientific sessions, 2 lunches and 4 coffee-breaks.

Meanwhile, #FollowTheYPHE in the social media and share it with your colleagues!

Elevator Pitch

  1. Generate the idea
    First, participants will be divided in groups of four in a random fashion. Each group will prepare an elevator pitch (3 minutes speech) to present a research or innovation idea. Each group may produce up to 3 slides to be presented.
  2. Structure the presentation
    1st slide | What is the problem that needs to be fixed? What we do not know?
    2nd slide | What is your idea? Show your value proposal. How can the idea fix the identified problem?
    3rd slide | How can your idea be scalable? Can it be used at a population level? How can it be implemented?

  3. Type of contents intended
    Interventions, ideas or research projects that have high impact at population health. Be optimistic, do not bother with budget or resources. Be innovative, be bold!

  4. Pitching the idea
    You will have 3 minutes to present your idea. Only one presenter is allowed. After the presentation one senior and one junior researcher will comment your presentation for 5 minutes.

  5. Best pitch
    The best pitch will be mentored by the board of researchers and a special gift will be offered!
