Date and location
The nEUROgastro TANDEM meeting will take place ONLINE on August 31 and September 1, 2021, prior to NeuroGASTRO 2021, to be held in Bucharest, Romania.
As Europe is growing together, new doors are opening for young investigators. Setting
international collaborations, elaborating common projects and team work are the basis to make good science. The nEUROgastro TANDEM meeting is a novel format of independent young investigator meeting focused on these topics. This highly competitive meeting is addressing European scientists with clinical and basic background. The meeting’s leitmotif is translational research: connect basic science to clinical expertise. After a selection process, ten MD and ten PhD applicants will be chosen and paired up three months prior to the meeting. Each team will be mentored by one member of the organizing committee. Teams are requested to come up with a translational pilot & feasibility project proposal that they must introduce in a 20-min presentation at the TANDEM meeting. Projects will be discussed with all participants and scored. The project/team with the highest score will get funding of 5000 Euro that is intended as start-up money with the goal to lead to an independent grant. The
modalities of payment are planned as a reimbursement bound to data presentation required at the next European NeuroGASTRO Meeting. The TANDEM Meeting will be summarized in one of the sessions at NeuroGASTRO 2021 in Bucharest as well as highlighted in Nature Reviews Gastroenterology & Hepatology.
