4th Early Stage Researchers Workshop on PET/MR: Pitching Session
May 20, 2015 - Isola Elba, Italy

Following the success of the "ESRs Pitching Session" during PSRM14 in Kos, the COST Action TD1004 on PET/MR organizes the "4th ESRs Workshop on PET/MR" during PSMR15 in Elba.
The event will take place on the afternoon of May 20th, 2015. As it happened last year, a number of ESRs will have the opportunity to present themselves in only 2 minutes, with only one slide as background, to the PSMR15 attendants. This will definitely give them the opportunity to introduce themselves and their work to potential collaborators. The best pitching will be awarded. The COST Action TD1004 will support up to 15 ESRs who will participate to this Workshop with a fixed grant of ~500€.

The main selection criteria for the ESRs are:
Be a member of one of the 22 TD1004 COST Action countries (this is a COST rule that needs to be respected)

  • Previous participation in an STSM;
  • Oral presentation in PSMR15 (preferably as first author);
  • Poster presentation in PSMR15 (preferably as first author);
  • Previous contributions in PET/MR domain (other publications etc.
Additional criteria that will be considered are:
  • Gender balance;
  • Fair geographical distribution;
  • Lack of funding from other resources.
The interested ESRs can express their interest by contacting Prof. George Loudos, preferably before April 18th.
