EUCLIDS at ESPID MasterClass 2015
EUCLIDS - Taking responsibility in future scientific research
One of the crucial goals of the EUCLIDS project is contributing towards the training of young clinicians and scientists. In this context, a EUCLIDS group of five junour researchers, led by one senior researcher, participated in the 7th Research Masterclass of the European Society of Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) at the annual meeting in Leipzig, in May of this year.
The masterclass was a closed, seminar type forum for active pediatric infectious diseases (PID) research groups in Europe. It was a high level opportunity for young researchers to present their studies and to discuss and debate findings with other colleagues from across different European research groups.
Two presentations were given for EUCLIDS, with a heavy focus of the sessions being dedicated to an overview of recent PID research in Europe.
Overall, the even proved a success and a worthwile opportunities for researchers to develop their skills towards effectively communicating science to public audiences and to show-case their research's meanginful results.
