Important deadline coming up!

Don’t forget the deadline for registration for Early Career Researchers (ECR) awards, it’s coming up this Thursday, January 31st. If you are an ECR and miss the deadline, you miss a great opportunity for awards and prime time exposure of your research. Check the details about ECR ( and awards (  below or the conference website. 

WDPI2019 presents an array of exciting keynote speeches on work disability and integration by some of the top researchers in the field. But the conference is not all hard work, there will also be time to play: There will be a social event for Early Career Researchers after the first full conference day on Wednesday, June 5th. The organisers are keeping the details close to their chest but prepare to be dazzled!

One of the Early Career Researchers who has already registered for the conference and who has submitted two abstracts for presentation at the conference is Tina Dalager, PhD Student at the Department of Sports Science and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark. To her it makes good sense to be at WDPI2019 and she is excited about the conference and what she will get out of it.

– My interest and my research area is how to ensure that people have a healthy and good working life. Participating in WDPI2019 gives me the opportunity to network and present my research. I get the chance to talk to more experienced researchers and it is a good forum for us young researchers to seek out other researchers for future collaboration.

WDPI2019 presents an interesting programme with an array of exciting and relevant keynote speeches. Tina Dalager looks forward to Ute Bültmann’s ‘Work and Health from a Life course Perspective’

– Ute Bültmann’s keynote speech relates to my research most closely. I also look forward to presenting my two abstracts and hopefully some interesting discussions will arise based on my presentations. Hopefully, I can also bring home some good ideas for my next project.

To be considered as an Early Career Researcher (ECR) you must currently be undertaking pre-graduate research, be studying for a PhD, or have recently completed a PhD (within 3 years of working full-time, part-time equivalent, since your award). In some cases, you may be more experienced, but new to this research field. To register send an email to with your name, submission ID and title of the abstract and indicate your qualifications.
