Diabetes Technology in Clinical Practice is a two-day course providing lectures and hands-on practice with novel and existing diabetes technologies. The course content ranges from cutting-edge research to the technologies used in daily clinical practice, and gives the participants unique insight into both worlds.


Dates: 23-24 November 2023
Place: Comwell Hvide Hus, Vesterbro 2, 9000 Aalborg, Denmark 


The course is intended for PhD students, but we also welcome clinicians and researchers, at all levels working within any field of diabetes, metabolism and classical endocrinology, including basic, translational, clinical and interdisciplinary science, to attend.

Participants will be selected on a first come, first served basis; however, PhD students and participants who submitted an abstract will be prioritised in the event the course becomes overbooked.

Please note that you are not guaranteed a seat at the course if you do not meet the target group requirements. Priority is given to participants employed at Danish research and health institutions or in the life science industry. If the event is overbooked, the DDEA reserves its right to select participants based on the defined requirements.


The first day of this two-day course will include lectures by leading experts in the fields. The scientific topics covered will include:

  • Continuous glucose monitoring
  • Continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion
  • Closed loop systems
  • Advanced use of data from diabetes technology

Through a poster session, participants will be invited to present their current preliminary results and receive feedback from senior researchers. Posters are welcome from all areas and types of diabetes, metabolism and endocrinology research. To participate in the poster session, it is not necessary that your research is on diabetes technology.

Additionally, the first day will include a networking lunch to strengthen future diabetes research in Denmark.

The second day will include a workshop where students can get hands-on experience with some of the novel technologies presented at the seminar.

Through the course, participants will gain knowledge on:

  • Clinical use of diabetes technology including pumps, continuous glucose monitoring and sensors
  • What’s “hot” in diabetes technology research
  • Hypoglycemia unawareness and how to deal with it
  • Data-driven opportunities to assist and improve diabetes care
  • Hands-on experience with novel and existing diabetes technologies
