Young Scientists' Awards

Young Scientists' Sessions...

...aim at encouraging young scientists to attend this interdisciplinary congress in the field of ADHD.

The Scientific Committee selects eight abstracts out of the submitted applications. The authors are invited to give a presentation as part of our two Young Scientists‘ Sessions. The sessions are chaired by recognized experts for the featured topic. Speakers are requested to show a copy of their ID to prove, they are younger than 35 years of age. The winners receive a Young Scientist Award of € 500 each.
