Join the Young ISDE Committee for its first Dragons Den for young researchers at the 19th ISDE World Congress on Friday, September 8th starting at 1:45 PM. During this session early-career researchers will pitch their research projects to an international panel of experts “The Dragons” who will assess and provide feedback. The Dragons will select a winning research project to receive a small incentive prize, support with establishing a multicenter study and access to expertise and mentors throughout the project.  

The committee will also be sharing information and news about Young ISDE during the session. 

About the Research Projects Being Pitched 

Research projects were submitted in advance and the highest scoring proposals were selected to present during this session.This initiative is intended to provide support to early career researchers who may not otherwise have access to a network, mentors or expertise.
