Did you attend the Copenhagen Congress? We “ASQ” for your help for young nephrologists living in developing countries
ERA-EDTA has created an electronic congress feedback questionnaire aimed at collecting impressions, suggestions and remarks relating to this event.
We warmly invite all registered delegates to complete this questionnaire that should take no more than 3 minutes to complete.
Delegates will not only be providing us with some very useful information so that we can improve future ERA-EDTA congresses, but they will also be helping young colleagues living in developing countries (GPD < USD 10,000) to attend the ERA-EDTA Congress in Budapest (Hungary) next year!
In fact, for every 200 completed feedback questionnaires, the ERA-EDTA will offer one congress grant. This initiative, known as the Altruistic Support by Questionnaire (ASQ), is part of the exclusive ERA-EDTA advantages for young nephrologists living in disadvantaged areas of the world where education and scientific updates are needed.
Click here to complete the post-congress feedback. Your opinion is important to us!
See you in Budapest in 2019!
The 55th ERA-EDTA Congress in Copenhagen is sadly over, but we are already working towards the 56th ERA-EDTA Congress, which will be held in Budapest (Hungary) on June 13-16, 2019.
