Each session will run for 60 minutes and comprise 3 x 10-minute presentations by session panelists followed by a moderated 30-minute discussion. Each session panel will include two invited senior experts, and one PhD student or Early Career Researcher.
Among our confirmed expert panellists are:
Distinguished Professor Jane Hall, Centre for Health Economics Research and Evaluation (CHERE), UTS
Professor Anthony Scott, Melbourne Institute: Applied Economic & Social Research, University of Melbourne

These senior experts in each session will provide formal feedback to the PhD student or ECRs joining their panel. It is hoped that this format will encourage and promote ongoing research, as well as raise the profiles of the future generation of health economists.
