NEYD is a small friendly research meeting. It provides an opportunity for young diabetes researchers in the field of diabetes to present their research (including research in progress) to peers from other North European countries. NEYD is the successor to Anglo-Dutch-Danish Diabetes Group.
This is a really enjoyable, informal, residential, meeting with the opportunity to gain feedback on not only on your research and its presentation, but also on presentation skills. The best 10 candidates from each of the UK, Netherlands/Belgium and Denmark meet and get to present and discuss their work. More experienced researchers are on hand to guide and critique.
Three senior investigators, one from each country, participate in the meeting. At the end of the meeting one senior investigator will hold a state of the art lecture, and two other senior investigators will have a debate on a controversial or challenging diabetes related topic.
In addition to the scientific program, each year a social activity (usually outdoors) is organized which additionally provides the opportunity to meet diabetes researchers from other countries in a relaxed environment.
