Autumn Academy 2019

“The Transparent Patient”

October 7 to 11, 2019

The Autumn Academy took place during the three days of the «Engelberg Dialogues», with the aim of bringing together prospective young scientists from different countries and different disciplines to discuss the topic «The transparent patient». Their work and perspectives were discussed during interdisciplinary workshops, aiming to develop and deliver new insights on the issue at stake. The participants worked most of the time in three groups on three topics. Each group established a final report which you can download here. In addition, you may also download the abstracts which the young scientists – who were selected for the Autumn Academy – sent in with their application.
