Committee of education

The Committee for Education consists of fourteen national experts of the highest international calibre within relevant diabetes areas and within education. The composition will ensure diversity (gender, age, competences).

The aim of the Committee is to plan educational and talent development activities for diabetes researchers affiliated to the DDA. This aim will be achieved through theoretical and practical courses, workshops, seminars, symposia, Summer Schools, Winter Schools and national/international meetings.
