Young ESPID

Welcome message

Welcome to “Young ESPID”, the next generation of Paediatric Infectious Diseases experts in Europe and beyond. As a group of under-40s we have been actively involved in the ESPID Board and its committees since December 2010. “Young ESPID” was founded as a result of ESPID’s strategic plan 2010-2015. Young ESPID members were stimulated to develop a forum to strengthen PID in Europe and act as a think tank for ESPID.
We currently participate in all ESPID committees where we focus on:
•    Improvement of the ESPID website 
•    Communication between ESPID members (forum format) 
•    Improved visibility of ESPID through social media
•    Participation in the organisation of the Walter Marget workshop and the Research Master Class
•    Review of the PID training portfolio in Europe
•    Training possibilities and job opportunities 
•    Development of educational material and guidelines
•    Stimulation of and increased participation in research consortia
•    Initiation of research projects by Young ESPID 
•    Active involvement of Young ESPID in the organisation of ESPID Annual Meetings
•    Two of our members represent our ideas and provide feedback into the board
We cordially invite you to become an active member of Young ESPID and help us shape the future of PID in Europe and beyond. New ideas are always welcome!
If you are interested in contributing to any of these activities and would like to be kept up-to-date on the activities of Young ESPID you can contact us through youngespid@espid.org

Robin Marlow and Fani Ladomenou
