Leadership & Governance

Young Investigators (YI) task force

The YI Task Force aims to

  • promote EASL activities for YIs
  • build an active and dynamic community of YIs involved in EASL activities
  • promote and facilitate discussion and exchange of information via EASL online forums and at EASL events
  • host an exclusive social networking event during the EASL Congress solely for YIs
  • encourage other YIs to become EASL members and join the EASL community

The YI Task Force advises the EASL Governing Board on specific educational initiatives for young hepatologists. The group organises different activities during EASL Congress such as the:

YI Seminar

  • The YI Seminar deals with topics of particular interest for YIs that are not covered by other sessions at the EASL Congress.

YI Networking Event

  • Each year, the YI Networking Event takes place on Thursday evening during EASL Congress. This is a great opportunity to meet and interact with other Young Investigators and trainees..

Emerging Leader Award

  • The YI Task Force reviews applications received for the Emerging Leader Award and makes a recommendation to the EASL Governing Board on who is deserving of the award.
