We welcomed many early career endocrinologists! The ESE Young Endocrinologists & Scientists (EYES) Committee is the early career community of ESE, actively advocating the opinions, suggestions and expectations of Early Career investigators within ESE and organising events and programmes for early career members.
Early career endocrinologists benefit from reduced rates to attend our annual European Congress of Endocrinology (ECE) and accessed a great programme curated especially for you!

EYES Speed Networking Breakfast
We will be holding our first virtual EYES Speed Networking Breakfast on Sunday 23 May 2021, 09:00 - 10:00 (CEST). This session aims to bring together Early career and Senior delegates to create a collaborative environment and facilitate networking opportunities among attendees.
Early career delegates are likely to have had to pause all experiments and clinical trials due to the pandemic causing lockdowns and shifting work priorities; as a result, most likely will not have data to publish. Senior delegates, on the other hand, will have a lot of data and may be looking to collaborate with other to analyse the data and publish manuscripts. During this session, delegates will be split into breakout rooms according to their focus area preference. Each delegate will be asked to introduce themselves and will have a maximum of 3 minutes to pitch and 2 minutes for Q&A. When all delegates within that group have their chance to speak, there will be 10 minutes for group discussion and further Q&A.
As part of your pitch, you will need to prepare the following prior to the event:
- What have you done? Explain what your background is and what expertise you have.
- What are you doing? Explain what you are currently working on (experiments/studies)
- What do you want to do? If you have data or samples for potential collaborations, or if you have particular specialist expertise in an area explain how this can benefit a potential collaboration.
Quiz and Social event
Back by popular demand after last year’s success, we will be running another virtual quiz and social event on Sunday 23 May 20:00 -21:00 (CEST). Come along to have some fun and test your knowledge. It's bring your own drinks, and the quiz is open to all so it's a great way to meet people!
