Due to overwhelming demand from students, we have negotiated additional space at the conference venue and so are pleased to announce that we will now hold additional late-breaking sessions, with 4 sessions now running in parallel throughout Tuesday 2nd September. The goal of these sessions will be to present the most recent, relevant, and high quality research which was not complete at the time of the initial abstract call. Late-break sessions will run under the same format as the rest of the conference, with work selected for oral paper presentation allocated a one hour slot for presentation and detailed discussion led by another student's supervisor. This hour slot will consist of a 25 minute presentation by the author, 15 minute discussion by another student/ECR's supervisor, followed by 20 minutes for questions and general discussion from the audience.
To submit an abstract for consideration in the late-break sessions, please email your abstract in a word/PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org
Currently, the conference programme consists of 55 presentations from students across Europe. A book compiling the abstracts of work to be presented is attached. The event will offer a unique opportunity for PhD students and early career researchers to present their work, receive detailed feedback from senior colleagues, and network with their peers.
Abstracts should be written in English and not exceed 400 words. Content should be work in progress, but we do require at least preliminary results. If accepted for oral paper presentation, authors will be required to submit a working paper by July 31st. Work submitted to the late-break call must therefore be at a sufficient stage to produce a working paper by this date.
Late-break abstract call closes - midnight GMT June 16th
Authors will be notified of the decision on June 27th.
Please note, the time frame for late-break submissions is very tight. If selected for oral paper presentation in a late-break session, authors must register by midnight GMT July 16th to secure the place of their paper in the conference. Full working papers must be submitted by midnight GMT July 31st.
More information about the conference can be found on the conference page

Dear EuHEA Member,
as you may be aware, the health economics congress this July (Health Economics in the Age of Longevity) in Dublin is a joint congress between iHEA and the European Conference on Health Economics (ECHE) series. This agreement pre-dates the recent formation of EuHEA and, thus, registration was based on the iHEA format of providing a reduced fee for members.
As EuHEA is a new association and its membership structure is not compatible with the iHEA system, there has not been enough time to set up a EuHEA-only member rate.
For now, to access the best congress rates you will need to have a current iHEA membership. iHEA and EuHEA will set an agreement on the financial arrangements associated with the joint conference. We will inform you once this issue has been resolved.
