Junior Scientist

Junior researchers are an integral part of the ECNP Congress and ECNP has installed a variety of measures to ensure that their participation is made as easy as possible.

The Junior Members Advisory Panel (JMAP) was especially set up in 2012 to come up with ideas to involve junior scientists in ECNP activities. We are continuously exploring new ways to encourage the participation of junior researchers at the ECNP Congress and enrich their congress experience. If you have ideas and suggestions, let us know by e-mail.
