If you are a trainee or a young scientist in CM/ID, don’t miss the opportunity to join the TAE Day, a well-received ECCMID session where different activities related to trainees will take place. The highlight of the TAE Day is the Round Table Session, an informal setting where trainees/young professionals can get inspiration from renowned experts in CM and ID. New for this year is a second part of the round table session, where participants will talk about specialized topics with the same table moderators, in addition to having general questions/discussion during the first part.
