Nordic Network for Young Researchers

New research and new researchers are essential to the sustainability of the eating disorder field. One aim of the Nordic Eating Disorder Society (NEDS) is to facilitate research in the field, especially research that implies co-operation among professionals in the field in the Nordic countries.

To support this aim, we now invite all young researchers (masters students, PhD students and postdocs) to an event in conjunction to the Nordic ED conference in Oslo. The program includes short presentations and social interaction. Our ambition is that this event will be the first step of the formation of a Nordic network for young researchers in the ED field.

The event will be moderated by Rasmus Isomaa, chair of NEDS, and David Clinton, associate professor at Karolinska Institutet.

The event is free of charge, lasts 90 minutes, but pre-registration is required.
