The European Young Investigators is an exciting new educational project being led by Prof Nathan Clumeck that aims to foster deeper and more frequent exchanges among young HIV experts across Europe. It will build on the work ViiV Healthcare began with their European Network of Young HIV Experts. The first EACS European Young Investigators conference took place on 16 December 2016.
The one-day event which involved plenary sessions and workshops was organised by a scientific committee composed of young experts. A young expert is a clinician or investigator who has published three or four articles, spoken at a major conference and who has between five to eight years of activity in the HIV field.
The conference took place at the prestigious Royal Academies for Science and the Arts of Belgium. It is on invitation only.
