About the YIU
EASO’s Young Investigators United was established in 2005 and now acts as an informal community for young investigators to collaborate on projects and to share experiences and expertise. The YIU initiative combines an online community with an annual event at the ECO, where young investigators have an opportunity to meet, interact and share ideas with colleagues from around the world.
Young Investigators United aims to:
- Facilitate the networking of young European scientists
- Provide an arena for the exchange of ideas and best practices between experts and experts-to-come
- Improve opportunities for future collaborations or consultations when heading for the common goal: preventing and treating obesity.
For more information for how to get involved in YIU, please see the www.easo.org/yiu.
We would also like to take this opportunity to announce that the EASO Young Investigators United network now has a group page on Facebook. All ECO2011 delegates are welcome to join our online community.
