Future leaders need to be trained and encouraged to succeed in their role, ideally with the support of experienced leaders. To make this feasible, YS must have activities that encourage their participation, offer opportunities of training and improve communication and networking. In order to achieve these aims, if you are a Young Scientists (under 40 years of age) register for the “IFCC Young Scientists FORUM” to be held just ahead of and in conjunction with the WorldLab 2022 Congress in Seoul, Korea.

The scientific program at the FORUM will provide the young scientists an excellent opportunity and open discussion platform for a scientific and personal experience, exchanging ideas with colleagues and establishing new acquaintances. Young Scientists will present and discuss their activities in laboratory medicine, benefit from career skills development.
