Best abstract pitch and poster at ESCAIDE 2021

Best abstract and poster

Abstracts selected for ESCAIDE were presented as either oral abstract pitches or posters, which were displayed on the online platform and discussed further in fireside sessions or poster tours during the conference.

After each session, participants were invited to vote for their favourite abstract pitch or poster presented, and those with the most votes overall were announced as the winners by ECDC Director, Andrea Ammon, during the closing ceremony

110 posters were presented across 22 poster tour sessions, and 55 abstract pitches were presented across 11 fireside sessions, so this is a fantastic achievement.
