The aim of this project is to promote research activities and networking among dental students and offer them research and development opportunities in an international setting. As part of this program, several possibilities will be offered to students interested in research: summer research camps, EDSA Research Forum, scientific webinars.
The scientific webinars are online events offering the chance to join experts from around the globe in a live discussion on a specific key scientific topic. This new scientific direction represents not only an easy to access, but also a convenient medium to receive, give, and discuss research-oriented and clinical related information. Using video platforms makes the lectures available after the live sessions. It is an opportunity to interact with teachers, doctors, researchers interested in dental education in realtime, as well as an occasion to forge a unique bond with other students.
The newest EDSA project is the Research Forum. This unique hub connects European dental students working on international research projects. The Forum also helps students find experienced researchers within academia or industry to mentor them. It should serve as a communication platform offering opportunities to get involved in dental research at an early stage of one’s career.
