Young Fellows of EAS Programme

The Young Fellows of EAS Programme is a new educational activity, where our brightest young members from all over Europe will, over the course of two meetings, gain a broad and deep understanding of the disease’s many aspects and contributing factors.

Participation in the Programme is by invitation only for participants selected for their scientific excellence from a pool of candidates nominated by senior Society members. Nominated candidates should be early in their career, but should have made some progress in basic or clinical research, with at least one publication. A firm commitment to follow a career in the field of atherosclerosis and related disease is required.

The Programme takes place over two meetings, each 2,5 days.
Kindly note that, once accepted on the programme, participants are expected to take part in both meetings.
