Ticket information

Registration will be open soon.

On behalf of the European Health Economics Association it is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 8th EuHEA PhD Student-Supervisor and Early Career Researcher Conference, taking place between the 1st and 3rd of September 2021, organised by Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

As we are unable to guarantee an in-person event in September the conference will be online by default and attendance will be free of charge. The committee will review the situation in June to assess the possibility of a hybrid in-person/online conference. All attendees will be notified of this decision by June 30th and given the possibility of registering to the in-person event, if applicable. Whatever the circumstances, we are certain that this year’s edition will be a success:

The conference presents a valuable opportunity for PhD students and young researchers in the field of health economics to present their on-going research and receive important feedback from experienced colleagues with expertise in their field of study. It provides an excellent platform to advance on-going research, (online and hopefully in-person) networking with peers, and gain new insights and collaborations with other researchers who are interested in the same field.

The engagement of supervisors is paramount to this conference, as they play a unique role in accompanying their students while at the same time providing valuable formal and informal feedback to the other participants. It is now the hallmark of this conference and the most valuable component as per past participants’ feedback, both students and supervisors.


  • We are currently working on defining the best suited format for this online workshop. We are aiming at having each paper presented by her/his author and discussed by a senior researcher (like in a regular EuHEA PhD / supervisor conference), as well as some time dedicated to questions and discussion with the – online – audience. 

    We are gathering ideas to make the workshop as interactive as possible while acknowledging the technical constraints. Many of you are now attending online seminars, so if you have any tips/good practices regarding online scientific events, please share them by sending us an email!

  • Will be published soon.

  • A full hour session is scheduled for each accepted paper:

    • 25 minute presentation by the author
    • 15 minute discussion by another student’s supervisor
    • 20 minutes for questions and general discussion
  • No, the workshop will be open to all PhD students and Early Career Researchers. We specifically encourage PhD students in their final year to submit, as the workshop will provide a good opportunity to have your research discussed and made visible despite the cancellation of many conferences. This implies that, (only) in case of a large number of submissions, priority will be given to PhD students in their final year.

  • Yes, this is possible and welcome. We are currently working on a (free of charge) registration system for all people interested in attending the workshop. More information will follow.

  • No, participation and attendance to the workshop will be free of charge. Another good reason to participate!
