Young Forum Gastein

Young Forum Gastein @ EHFG 2013

The Young Forum Gastein initiative is a joint project of the International Forum Gastein, the European Commission Directorate Generals SANCO (Health and Consumers) and CONNECT (Communications Networks, Content and Technology) and the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe. It is aimed at young professionals from across Europe who are working in the field of health. 

The Young Forum Gastein scholarship was initiated in 2007, to enable promising young health professionals to attend the annual European Health Forum Gastein (EHFG) conference for learning and networking. In the framework of an engaging and stimulating dedicated programme, the scholarship offers a unique opportunity to:

  • Learn about the latest health developments in Europe and across the world;
  • Develope important public health competencies such as the ability to build alliances and partnerships, learn advocacy and persuasion skills and develop presentation and communication skills;
  • Network and make new contacts with an enthusiastic young international, inter-cultural and inter-professional peer group as well as senior experts in the sphere of health;
  • Have privileged access to senior policymakers and academics in special closed workshop sessions dedicated to Young Forum Gastein;
  • Participate in tasks related to the EHFG, such as undertaking interviews, writing session reports, social media activities, compiling the Gastein Health Outcomes or acting as a speaker or session rapporteur;
  • Become part of the Young Forum Gastein Network and draw on the support of around 250 members working all over the world, as well as receiving year-round special opportunities to participate in workshops, summer schools and conferences.
