This course is free of charge.
Applicants will be required to upload the following documents - please also refer to the specfic requirements further detailed below:

• letter of support from ESPGHAN member in good standing (any type)
• video (to apply for the Young Research Curriculum)
Applicants will be selected on the basis of their abstracts, which are reviewed and scored independently by the faculty.
Definition of Young Investigator: Active clinical or laboratory based researcher, ideally less than 10 years working in paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. Delegates may not attend more than one forum.
Delegates: the forum is aimed at young investigators who are developing their research career and are committed to working in paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and/or nutrition in Europe. It is not aimed at experienced researchers who are already principal investigators with grant funding, or at workers who are intent on a career outside of Europe.
Abstract: the abstract should be divided into Background/Aims, Methods, Results, Summary/Conclusions. It is important that the abstract includes data from your research activity and doesn’t describe plans for the future without any actual data. Single case reports are less likely to be successful unless they have an important message of wide relevance.
Letter of Support: the ESPGHAN member who is supporting you should give some information about your current situation and your state of training.
CV: this should be relatively brief but include basic information and any items that are relevant to your gastroenterology/hepatology/nutrition experience and training, plus any presentations to national and international meetings and any publications (including abstracts).
Video: A subselection of the delegates will have the opportunity to be selected for the 2 years ESPGHAN Young Researchers Curriculum. If you are interested in joining this iniciative, please send a video of maximum 3 minutes to us by email before August 16th, 2023. The video should contain your pitch of what your ambition is within the PGHN research field and what your envision to have reached within the coming 5 years.
Accompanying persons: faculty and delegates are discouraged from bringing any accompanying persons as this reduces the interaction between delegates.
Please note that YIF participants are expected attend the whole meeting, incuding socials. Delegates may not attend more than 1 forum
