EuHEA PhD student-supervisor and early career researcher conference, Manchester, England, September 2014.
The Manchester Centre for Health Economics is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first European Health Economics Association (EuHEA) PhD student-supervisor and early career researchers (ECRs) conference from 1st-3rd September 2014.
This is a unique opportunity for PhD students and ECRs to network and receive detailed feedback on their research. Each paper will be allocated one hour, for presentation by the author and detailed discussion led by another student/ECR's supervisor, followed by questions and general discussion from the audience.
Abstract submission deadline - 12th February 2014
Abstracts should be written in English and not exceed 400 words. Content should be work in progress, and not yet have been submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal. To submit an abstract please email MCHE@manchester.ac.uk attaching your abstract in a word/PDF document.
The conference is aimed at current PhD students and ECRs, who in this case are defined as those who have either not yet undertaken a PhD or who will be within three years of the completion date of their PhD at the time of the conference.The format of the conference, along with the pricing structure, strongly encourages attendance of both PhD students/ECRs and their supervisors. Supervisor is defined loosely for this reason, and simply refers to a senior colleague (preferably involved in the work of the PhD student/ECR) who is willing to attend the conference and discuss the work of another participant. PhD students, ECRs and supervisors are, however, very welcome to attend the conference alone.
Awards will be given for the best paper and best poster presented.
The registration fee is all-inclusive (two nights accommodation at The Palace Hotel, food and refreshments throughout the conference). To reflect the distinctive conference format, students/ECRs and supervisors can register jointly for just 356Euros (£300) each.
