Scientific Workshop 7:
SciCom will be launching a seventh Scientific Workshop - a call is opened in February 2019.
General information - ECCO Scientific Workshops:
Our scientific workshops aim at unraveling unanswered questions in the field of IBD, producing authoritative reviews and thus contributing to the body of knowledge. These workshops are launched bi-annually by our Scientific Committee (two-year process per workshop).
These workshops address a single question, with working groups performing a systematic review to be published and setting the goals for research to answer the question.
Patient material is used to study a given question from different aspects in working groups of 5-8 members. Involvement is limited to participating members, who are presenting predefined aspects of a relevant question (~ 20 min each). A brainstorming discussion aims at outlining a resolution. The research would be funded by open application to grant-funding bodies, including ECCO for pilot work.
All interested basic scientists are welcome to apply prior to the deadline. All participants follow a strict ethical code including the agreement not to use discussions and resolutions outside of ECCO and to follow pre-discussed rules on publication and authorship. No direct industry sponsoring will be accepted.
