Support to EPH Conference delegates
EPH Conference Foundation and the European Public Health Association (EUPHA) offer various types of support to delegates of the EPH Conferences.
- Do you need help with your abstract?
- Do you need financial support?
- Would you like to win an honorable prize?
Abstract Tutoring Programme
EUPHAnxt provides an Abstract Tutoring Programme offering an opportunity for young and/or less experienced abstract submitters to receive feedback from experienced reviewers. The programme is especially targeted at researchers who have limited access to colleagues to ask for guidance and comments on their proposed abstracts.The programme is completely independent of the abstract review and selection process. Experienced reviewers from the International Scientific Committee and EUPHA Sections will act as tutors. They will provide one-time, anonymous feedback on the writing and format of an abstract. They are not asked to provide advice on research methods, analysis, or the report of results. They do not correct spelling and grammar.
The Abstract Tutoring Programme is open from 1 February to 9 April each year. Instructions will be announced on the EPH Conference website.
Jouke van der Zee Fund
For many years, the European Public Health Association and the EPH Conference Foundation have been supporting participants from low- and middle-income countries financially. To make the support more sustainable, both organizations have set up a fund for this in 2020. The Jouke van der Zee Fund generously offers waivers of registration fees to delegates to attend and present their latest research at the annual EPH Conference.
Prof Dr Jouke van der Zee was one of the founding members of EUPHA in 1992 and initiator of the first European Public Health Conference. Over the years, Prof van der Zee and his institute – NIVEL – generously supported the EUPHA office and the EUPHA conference, as the EPH Conference was known at the time.
To apply for support from the Jouke van der Zee Fund, delegates must follow the application instructions announced annually on the EPH Conference website.
Prizes and Awards
At each EPH Conference, honorable prizes are awarded for the best abstract, presentation and poster.
Best abstract prize
A prize is awarded for the best single abstract. The prize is determined by the scoring of the EPH Conference International Scientific Committee. The winner will be awarded a certificate and waiver of registration fees for the next EPH Conference.
Ferenc Bojan Young Investigators Award
The best five abstracts, submitted by young researchers, will be presented in the Ferenc Bojan session. This session is named after Prof Dr Ferenc Bojan, former EUPHA president who tragically died in a car accident. The Ferenc Bojan session is a normal oral session, but with a jury consisting of experienced researchers to select the best abstract/presentation combination. The winner will be awarded a certificate and waiver of registration fees for the next EPH Conference.
Best poster prize
The prize for the best poster is determined by all delegates who use the Conference App to select the poster of their choice. The winner will be awarded a certificate.
All prize winners will receive their certificates during the Closing Ceremony of the EPH Conference.
