2019 student-supervisor conference

4 to 6 September 2019

Porto, Portugal


On behalf of the European Health Economics Association and the Portuguese Association of Health Economics (APES) it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 6th EuHEA PhD Student-Supervisor and Early Career Researcher Conference, taking place between the 4th and 6th of September, at Católica Porto Business School, in Porto, Portugal.

The conference presents a valuable opportunity for PhD students and young researchers in the field of health economics to present their on-going research and receive important feedback from experienced health economists and peers with expertise in their field of study. It provides an excellent platform to advance on-going research, network with peers, and gain new insights and collaborations with other researchers who are interested in the same field.

The engagement of supervisors is paramount to this conference, as they play a unique role in accompanying their students while at the same time providing valuable formal and informal feedback to the other participants. It is now the hallmark of this conference and the most valuable component as per past participants’ feedback, both students and supervisors.

Conference session format:

25 minute presentation by the author
15 minute discussion by another student’s supervisor
20 minutes for questions and general discussion
