About the Early Career Researcher Meeting

The Early Career Researcher Meeting, organised and run by Eunethydis in collaboration with the World federation for ADHD, has been designed to provide a platform for early career ADHD researchers and early career clinicians engaged in research on ADHD to present their work at a major international meeting.

The Early Career Researcher meeting will take place on Wednesday, 17 May 2023, starting 13:00 and Thursday, 18 May 2023, starting 08:30 just before the start of the 9th World Congress on ADHD.

The Early Career Researcher meeting is for up-and-coming ADHD researchers who are enrolled to attend the World Congress on ADHD and 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 Researcher (ECR) Scientific Conference Programme is 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 oral presentations grouped into themes and delivered by the ECR participants. Presenters will be selected by the Scientific Committee from abstract submissions. This gives those presenting a great opportunity to present their research to an audience of peers and selected 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.

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