The Young Researchers Special Interest Group was founded at the 2017 EAPM conference in Barcelona.

Special Interest Group Young Researchers: Activities at the EAPM conference in Verona

The EAPM Special Interest Group “Young Researchers” aims to connect young European scientists in the field of psychosomatic medicine, foster academic exchange, increase visibility of innovative research performed by young researchers, and to be a voice of the emerging young scientists.

SIG Young Researchers Science Slam

In an inspiringly brilliant session, five young researchers (Annette Burns, Paul Hüsing, Julia Landi, Dr. Jennifer Schmidt, Natalie Uhlenbusch) participated in the Science Slam. They had the opportunity to present their research in a brief, more informal, passionate, and catchy way. Their task was to convince the audience why their research matters and why we should all care about it. An expert jury (Prof. Dr. Peter Henningsen, Prof. Dr. Adrienne Stauder, Prof. Dr. Istvan Mucsi, Dr. Isolde Busch) rated their performance and awarded Natalie Uhlenbusch (Hamburg, Germany) the winning slammer with her talk on “Mental health care in rare chronic diseases”.
