Young NVDO meeting

Annual meeting of the young investigators of the Dutch Association for Diabetes Research (‘jonge NVDO-bijeenkomst’)

Once yearly, this meeting is held in the Netherlands. Young investigators from the Netherlands and Belgium who participate in clinical, basic or epidemiological research related to diabetes are invited to submit an abstract. 12-16 participants usually attend the meeting and present their data. Two senior discussants and the other presenters provide feedback. An abstract may consist of (preliminary) data, a case report or a research proposal.

The next meeting will be held January 19-20 2018

Abstracts may be sent before December 1st

Northern European Young Diabetologists (NEYD)

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.

The next meeting will be held in the UK, May 23-25, 2018
