ATREUM is a UK based conference and workshop, spearheaded by the E-TERM Fellows, which will help to set the future direction of UK TERM research. Here, selected Early Career Researchers (ECRs < 10 years post PhD) will work with leaders in the field to define, direct and deliver the future of translational UK TERM research. Focusing on 5 key themes, ECRs will explore current challenges in translational TERM research, and work with field leaders, funders, and governmental policy makers to identify strategies for overcoming translational barriers in UK TERM research.
This intensive event is limited to 100 people; workshops led by field leaders and ECRs will be combined with ECR presentations and keynotes.
Keynote lectures, ECR presentations, facilitated microphone discussion, breakout sessions and interactive voting. One primary outcome from this conference is the chance for ECRs to engage with funders and policy makers, together producing a white paper report highlighting the future targets and direction of UK TERM research.
ATREUM gives added value to funders, regulators and policy makers through quantifiable data generated with interactive voting. This allows metrics to be set for UK TERM research on a range of markers, such as funding sources, research barriers and research cohort opinions. Separately, this allows the opportunity for policy makers and funders to engage with the research community.
ATREUM is a landmark, disruptive conference in the UK TERM field, and will set a precedent for ECR driven direction setting through engagement with research communities.
