CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

Dear PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and all interested parties,

With great pleasure we invite you to “Science and Us”, the 2nd congress of doctoral students with international participation.

The congress is intended for those in the scientific field of biomedicine and healthcare and will be held in Rijeka, from May 16th to 18th, 2024, at the Faculty of Medicine University of Rijeka, Croatia.

Importantly, PhD students will have the chance to present their data through oral and poster presentations and obtain ECTS credits for their programs. Additionally, the congress will be scored by the Croatian Medical and Healthcare professionals chambers.

While the majority of the oral presentation will be given by PhD students, the attendees will also have the opportunity to hear lectures from prominent invited experts in the fields of biomedicine, public health, environmental engineering, clinical and dental medicine. The official language of the congress is English.

Leisure poster sections and dancing in the afterhours will be organized.
