Young Forum Gastein 2019

Background information & materials

2 - 4 October 2019, Bad Hofgastein

In 2019, 69 young professionals working in the field of health from EU Member States and beyond were awarded a scholarship. They participated in the #EHFG2019 conference as Young Forum Gastein scholars and were introduced to the YFG Network.

The YFG Network was supported by the Bosch Foundation, ASPHER, ECDC, Forum Alpbach, Going International and the European Health Forum Gastein.


The YFG scholars have a busy schedule during the EHFG conference which includes participating in the general conference programme as well as attending specific Young Forum Gastein meetings and working groups. In 2019, Young Gasteiners could expand their knowledge in a health systems workshop and a skills-building session. Mentoring sessions with senior EHFG delegates representing the EHFG four pillars and a career talk were again in the programme. Additionally, Young Gasteiners did collaborate in diverse inter-professional and inter-cultural groups, facilitate networking and encourage thinking about the inherent issues of important European healthcare topics such as health diplomacy and policy and practice.
