Selective Pressure: Quiz Show

Selective Pressure will be a competitive quiz show, where groups of 4 persons can apply for participation in this brand-new interactive session. Members of the ESCMID community have submitted quiz questions, and ECCMID registrants have put together their teams to compete and claim the Selective Pressure trophy.


All ECCMID participants are welcome to attend this session for an interactive educational and entertaining experience, which will take place Sunday, 16 April 2023, from 13:30 to 15:45 CEST, Hall A. There will be participation opportunities for the general attendees throughout the session. In the semi-final round, the audience will be able to cast their votes along with the official jury and have an influence on the scores of the teams. In the final round, if the teams on stage cannot answer a question it will be opened up to the audience and a correct answer can win you a special ESCMID prize.

TAE Research Bites

The Research Bites session  is co-organised by TAE and SAS members, and aims to increase young scientists’ chances, especially from LMICs and economically disadvantaged regions, to give an oral presentation at ECCMID 2023. Six speakers will be selected for this session.


The Research Bites session aims to provide less experienced and/or economically disadvantaged early career researchers additional opportunities to gain a foothold in the scientific community and to advance in their research careers by presenting at ECCMID 2023. As a part of the preparation for the session, each selected presenting author will be coached by an experienced TAE or SAS member on how to efficiently present their research.


Two speakers of this session from LMICs  will be awarded a TAE Research Bites travel grant covering ECCMID 2023 registration and EUR 500 travel expenses.
