EDSA Research


The EDSA Research SIG is chaired by a delegate from the EDSA Executive Committee or their nominee. This is currently Hassib Kamell (NL).

Aims and Objectives

The EDSA Research Special Interest Group explores means of mobilising students to do their research abroad, how this can be facilitated, and how we can help them with.

It also explores:

  • How we can encourage students to get involved in research not because they have to, but because they want to.
  • Which tools might we might need to accomplish this, especially as we know that research and science is the only way of bringing us forward and to guarantee the best treatment for our patients.

Any other ideas on this area are welcomed for discussion during this Special Interest Group.
