ADHD World Federation - Modernising the concept of ADHD
Early Career Research Meeting

Welcome to the Early Career Research Meeting

Over the past 10 years, Eunethydis (the European Network for Hyperkinetic Disorders) has worked hard to ensure that early career researchers in the field of ADHD get the opportunity to present their work at international meetings in front of not only their peers but also clinical and research leaders. We see this as an important opportunity not only to present this, often innovative and exciting research to a wider audience and to hone your skills as a presenter but also to get helpful feedback that can compliment that given by supervisors.

This year Eunethydis is taking the opportunity to hold an Early Career Research Meeting alongside, and in collaboration with, the World Federation of ADHD at the 9th World Congress on ADHD in Amsterdam.

The Early Career Research Meeting will take place on Wednesday afternoon, 17 May, and Thursday morning, 18 May 2023 just prior to the main meeting. While everyone is encouraged to attend, all presentations will be made by Early Career Researchers. For this purpose, Early Career is defined as up and coming ADHD researchers who are:

a. Ph.D. students
b. Post-Doctoral Fellows within 5 years of completing their Ph.D.
c. Clinicians who are undertaking a Master’s or Doctoral degree or are conducting research (pertinent to ADHD) as part of their specialty training.  

The Early Career Research Meeting will be very much focused on participation and all attendees will be encouraged and supported to engage and get involved with the discussions. The programme will be centred around a series of oral presentations grouped into themes and delivered by Early Career Researchers. Presenters will be selected from abstracts by the Scientific Committee. This gives those presenting a great opportunity to present their research to an audience of peers and senior researchers in the field. For those who are not presenting it gives a fantastic opportunity to hear some of the latest developments in our field and to get involved in the scientific debate that follows.

For details of how to apply and submit your abstract look out for announcement, which will be coming soon.

To participate in the Early Career Research Meeting you can add the respective option to your bookings free of charge in the registration process.
