NET-work Europe 2014
A fresh and youthful focus on neuroendocrine tumour research – from basic science to clinical application
Noordwijk, the Netherlands, November 26-28 2014!
A creative forum for young research teams, where young scientists are allowed to present their projects and abstracts, where they can build new, useful international networks and initiate future neuroendocrine research cooperation.
For the third time the Nordic Neuroendocrine Tumour group (NNTG), in cooperation with colleagues from all over Europe, invites young investigators in endocrine tumour research to an international scientific conference focusing on junior scientists and their research careers.
Young researchers face many difficulties in the beginning of their careers and they don’t always know where to turn for adequate help and support. How to write the perfect abstract? Which is the best way to present a research project? How to get published in a scientific journal? How to find a supportive supervisor? In short, how to strengthen a research career?
The main purpose with NET-Work Europe 2014 is to support young experimental and clinical researchers interested in endocrine tumours from all over Europe in many different ways – helping them to find answers to the questions above, giving them possibilities to present their work, both orally and in writing, to participate in scientific sessions, to discuss and be inspired by posters and to broaden their own European scientific network in the field of neuroendocrinology.
The two-day symposium will present ample opportunities to discuss common career problems and gender issues, to meet and have discussions with senior top scientists, to find mentors, to participate in interesting workshops, to present, discuss and share their own research projects in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Our hope is that these two days of intense networking and sharing of knowledge will meet at least some of the well-known needs of junior scientists – all in the mutual interest of the development and future of neuroendocrine tumour research.
