About the Conference

A valuable opportunity for PhD students and young researchers in the field of health economics to present their on-going research and receive important feedback from experienced health economists and their peers.

The conference is an excellent platform to advance your early stage research with input from an international audience. It provides the possibility to network with colleagues and to be motivated by plenary sessions from acclaimed speakers in a stimulating academic and social environment.

 

Conference organisation

On behalf of the European Health Economics Association (EuHEA), the Swiss Society of Health Economics and the Interfaculty Health Economics and Management Platform of the University of Lausanne we would like to invite you to attend the 4th EuHEA PhD Student-Supervisor and Early Career Researcher Conference.

The objective of the conference is to provide an opportunity to PhD students and early career researchers to present their research and have it discussed in depth by a senior health economist and fellow researchers with expertise in their field of study. Hence the conference provides an excellent platform to advance a thesis chapter or research manuscript, network with your peers and gain new insights and collaborations with others interested in your topic.

Early career researchers are considered to be research assistants with less than 6 years of experience, but also post doctoral researchers, lecturers and assistant professors within 2-4 years of completing their doctoral studies.

Conference programme

The conference will start the afternoon of the 6th September with a welcoming lunch followed by a number of structured parallel sessions. There will be two plenary sessions, with one on the morning of Friday 8th September held jointly with the Swiss Society of Health Economics Conference.

Applicants whose papers are selected will be allocated one hour in which to present their research and to receive structured feedback from a senior health economist with a:

  • 25 minute presentation by the author;
  • 15 minute discussion by a senior health economist and;
  • 20 minutes for questions and general discussion.

Applicants can also participate in a special short research presentation session “My research in 5 minutes” with constructive feedback on each presentation.
