Dear Y-ECCO Friends,

I hope you all are doing well.

During my summer leave, I read a book on the time horizon principle. The author supposes that the productivity of the most successful people on the planet results from the balance between three core components: Time for yourself, relationships and work. As you all, hopefully, have had sufficient time for yourself and your family during your holidays, here are some ways to expand your (professional) relationships and work skills:  

First: To jump right in, contact Mark Samaan (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and contribute to one of the next issues of ECCO News with your own Y-ECCO Literature Review. Your article will be published along with your portrait photo and will immediately increase your visibility within the ECCO Community.

Second: Finalise your current lab/clinical project before November 21, which is the deadline for abstract submissions to the 15th Congress of ECCO. The top five abstracts submitted by Y-ECCO Members (two basic science and three clinical abstracts) will be recognised with the award of free registration for the following ECCO Congress as well as by honourable mention during the current ECCO Congress. In addition, six basic science abstracts submitted by Y-ECCO Members will be selected as oral presentations during the Y-ECCO Basic Science Workshop.

Third: To reach the next step in your career, check out the various ECCO Fellowships, which may be extremely helpful. Three ECCO basic science research fellowship awardees will share their experience with the attendants at the upcoming Y-ECCO Basic Science Workshop at ECCO 2020. Two other major reasons to participate in the Basic Science Workshop: Hans Clevers and Christianne Buskens have just confirmed that they will give state of the art lectures on Organoids and IBD and successful Translational basic science research, respectively, during the workshop.

Last but not least, we would be delighted for you to get in touch with us and join our twitter feed: @Y_ECCO_IBD.

All the best,

Dominik Bettenworth
Y-ECCO Chair
