ECF events at the EUSPR 2017 conference – a review

The 8th Conference and Members’ Meeting of the European Society for Prevention Research (EUSPR) took place in Vienna, Austria from 20th to the 22nd September 2017. As in the previous year, the EUSPR Early Careers Forum (ECF) was represented at the conference with an early-careers event on every day of the conference, including:

  • a pre-conference workshop,
  • a networking event,
  • early-career parallel sessions, and
  • special awards.

As with last year, we also offered members of the ECF the possibility to participate in the abstract review process, so as to help them develop their own abstract writing skills as well as to gain insights into what happens “behind the scenes” once an abstract is submitted.

The EUSPR generously sponsored 15 bursaries to support early-career preventionists to attend the conference, as well as the pre-conference workshop and our networking event – many thanks!!

Below, we briefly report on the various activities that took place. More pictures are available from our Facebook page.
