EPH Abstract Mentor Programme

The Abstract Mentor Programme has been extended until April 15th, 2018. This provides an opportunity for young and/or less experienced abstract submitters to receive feedback from experienced reviewers on their abstract for the upcoming EPH conference. The programme is especially targeted at researchers who have limited access to colleagues to ask for guidance and comments on their proposed abstracts.

How does it work?

Prepare a draft abstract in accordance with the EPH Conference Abstract Submission


Indicate tracks of your abstract (list available under “Guidelines”).

Send your anonymous draft abstract as a Word document for mentoring

to: abstract@ephconference.eu

Important: The mentoring process is anonymous, and you will receive feedback within two weeks!

We want your input!

Every year, EUPHA organise a workshop at the EPH conference to help young professionals and students to develop their skills.

Useful Info

There is an excellent opportunity to attend an upcoming seminar, with some sponsored places available for the European Health Policy Group Spring meeting in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) on 19 and 20 April 2018.

The theme of this seminar is of special interest to policy and practice in public health, since it deals with environmental and social determinants of health, which requires cross-sectoral collaboration.

The meeting is sponsored for EUPHA members. You may register with j.velthuis@euphaofice.org. Please register before Tuesday, April 10th so that we know how many attendants we can expect.

If you have a spare minute...
