The DDEA Annual Day is a celebration of high-quality, diverse research in diabetes, metabolism and classical endocrinology in Denmark and abroad. We invite you to be inspired by scientific talks, to expand your network across fields and sectors, and to present your research through lively poster pitches and a poster session.
When you register for the event, you can also nominate a scientist who you believe deserves to receive one of the prestigious DDEA awards for their contribution to the DDEA in 2023. Then, join us on the Annual Day to find out who will win these awards, and to learn about their success stories.
Mark your calendars for the DDEA Annual Day! This year is special, as we mark the first year of the new academy: the Danish Diabetes and Endocrine Academy (DDEA) – the first year in which we embraced the entire field of endocrinology and worked to build bridges between diabetes and classical endocrinology in Denmark.
This networking event programme consists of several scientific presentations from prominent scientists in the morning, an awards ceremony after lunch, a presentation/discussion about dissemination through scientific publication, and plenty of opportunities to expand your professional network, and have fun with new and old colleagues in an informal setting.
JOIN THE ANNUAL DAY WITH AN ABSTRACT & POSTER
The DDEA Annual Day will include poster presentations. All researchers, especially early career researchers, are warmly welcome and encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.
Abstracts will be reviewed and selected for poster presentation after the registration & abstract submission deadline, and participants will be notified if their abstract is accepted for a poster presentation.
In addition, all participants with abstracts accepted for poster presentations will be asked to participate in “partner poster pitches.” This fun twist on the more traditional poster pitching session will involve random pairing of participants in the morning of the event, discussions in the pairs about their research projects, and 2-3 min tandem poster pitches in which the partners present each others’ projects together.
The poster session will follow the poster pitches. Odd-numbered posters will be presented in the first half-hour and even-numbered posters in the second half-hour.
Please note that there will be awards for the three best posters:
1st Prize: 3,000 DKK
2nd Prize: 2,000 DKK
3rd Prize: 1,500 DKK
DDEA will set up an evaluation process with specific criteria to determine the poster award winners (further information will follow prior to the event).
The deadline for submission of abstracts is 17 December 2023.
DANISH DIABETES AND ENDOCRINE ACADEMY AWARDS
On the DDEA Annual Day, the DDEA will recognise excellence, innovation, passion and commitment in Danish diabetes and classical endocrinology research and education.
The winners must be able to attend the award ceremony at the DDEA Annual Day.
Further information about the specific requirements for each award, evaluation and how to nominate a candidate can be found at the links above.
Nomination deadline is 3 December 2023.
The DDEA Annual Day is intended for all researchers working within any field of, or related to, diabetes, metabolism, and classical endocrinology, including clinical, basic, translational and/or interdisciplinary research in any sector. The event is free of charge, and participants are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Priority is given to participants employed at Danish research and health institutions or in the life science industry, but a number of seats are reserved for participants employed at research and health institutions or in the life science industry abroad. If the event is overbooked, the DDEA reserves its right to select participants based on the defined requirements.
The DDEA organizes a networking lunch during the event. Participation in the lunch is free of charge. Please sign up for the lunch upon registration, and indicate whether you have any dietary requirements.
