SwissPedNet took over the realization of the "Young Researchers Day" and launched a new platform called "SwissPedNet Translational & Clinical Research Session".
The first SwissPedNet Clinical Research Session took place at the annual conference of the Swiss Society of Paediatrics (SGP/SSP) on June 21, 2013 in Geneva and is now an integral part of the SGP/SSP annual conferences.
After submitting studies and research projects to the judging panel of the annual conference, 10 to 14 young researchers get the opportunity to present their work during a 10 minutes-talk and the ensuing dialogue with the audience. Along with the content itself, the judging panel also evaluates the performance and the following discussion of the young researchers.
The research projects may cover all disciplines of pediatrics; beside clinical and epidemiological questions also studies in basic research may be presented.
The two young researchers with the best presentations out of all lectures are being honored with an award.
