Perio Talks by EFP Alumni
1st EFP Alumni Symposium
PERIO Talks application guide
What is the PERIO Talks session?
The PERIO Talks session is a new session that will take place at EUROPERIO9 in Amsterdam. The main actors will be the EFP Alumni (former graduates from EFP approved programmes) as well as current EFP postgraduates. This session is scheduled to take place on June 20 from 13:30 to 15:45 in the Main Auditorium and is open to all EuroPerio attendees.
The PERIO Talks is based on the TED Talks concept. TED (Technology / Entertainment / Design) is a global community, which believes passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and –ultimately – the world. TED Talks provide a showcase for important ideas in many topics and explore how these ideas connect with each other.
What the PERIO talks event is not
The PERIO talks session is not an industry or marketing conference. It is not used to sell anything and it is not organised for special-interest political, religious, or commercial groups.
PERIO Talks format
A suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations, and performances that are ideas-focused and that cover a wide range of subjects in the field of periodontology/dentistry/life experience. The goal is to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder as well as to provoke conversations that matter.
The typical presentation should be a talk of up to 10 minutes given by a single presenter. No panels or Q&As with audience will be permitted.
The themes of the PERIO Talks event will be multi-topical and broad. Taken together, the PERIO Talks must feature a diversity of speakers from across several disciplines who will address a variety of topics.
