Poster price for the junior research group of the DG-Sucht
Also this year the junior research group of the DG-Sucht awards a poster price. This price explicitly addresses junior researcher of the field science and practice, who
- have less than 5 years professional experience and
- are represented with an own poster at the German Congress on Addiction.
For participation we require an informal application by email until August 28th, 2016 via the spokespersons of the junior research group (Angela Buchholz: firstname.lastname@example.org / Anja Bischof: email@example.com). The price is endowed with a book token in the amount of 100 €.
Activities of the junior research group at the German Congress on Addiction 2015 in Hamburg
The junior research group could also actively help shape the German Congress on Addiction 2015 in Hamburg. As meanwhile every year we started with a pre-conference workshop on the day before the congress; this year with the subject poster design. Posters processed in this workshop could still be printed the same evening.
Furthermore we were represented in Hamburg with an own symposium on „health services research” with interesting contributions of junior researchers of the different fields of the health services research.
As already last year, we could also award a junior research group poster price this year. The submitted contributions were of high quality, as expected, which made the decision of the jury more difficult. The awardee of the poster price 2015 was Hanna Brand from the IFT in Munich with her contribution on “Mental comorbidity in the Addiction Treatment Service: prevention and actual medical treatment situation”.
The Congress on Addiction was – as always – an exciting and inspiring event, which beside highly interesting contributions additionally offered the opportunity to meet new people, to make contacts and to make friends. Also this year we would therefore like to say: Thank you for a great congress!
Activities of the junior research group at the German Congress on Addiction 2014 in Berlin
From September 30th – October 2nd 2014 the German Congress on Addiction took place in Berlin. Also this year the junior research group of the DG-Sucht was represented with numerous activities, among others with a pre-conference workshop on the subject “third parties funds acquisition” with Prof. Dr. Andreas Fallgatter and Dr. David Steffen as speakers in an own symposium under the title “Comorbidity in addictive disorders” and an own general assembly.
For the first time in 2014 a poster price for the junior research group was awarded. For this purpose, an independent jury of members of the junior research group was appointed to evaluate the submitted posters. The price included a certificate and a book token in the amount of 100 €. Due to the high quality of the submissions and the generosity of the publishers Huber Verlag, who donated a second price, two poster prices could be awarded.
The awardees were: Alena Becker (CIMH Mannheim) and Anke Friedrichs (UKE Hamburg).
We would like to thank all participants for their active involvement, interesting conversations and contacts and for a great and inspiring congress!
