Industry sessions

Industry

Companies and organisations involved in clinical and pre-clinical research, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the brain and looking for a scientifically driven engagement with the participants of the 34th ECNP Congress can choose between three types of industry sessions:

Deadline of application 1 February 2021

Industry Satellite Symposia (ISS) 
Scientifically oriented sessions (1 hour 30 minutes) take place outside the official ECNP scientific programme and all congress participants are welcome to attend. The Industry Satellite Symposia programmes will be reviewed for balance and rigour by the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC). 

Organisers of an Industry Satellite Symposium will be charged a fixed fee of EUR 46,800 (excl. VAT). In return the Industry Satellite Symposium will be listed in the printed matter of the congress and on the ECNP Congress website and app. The technical equipment presents in the room for the ECNP sessions and the room rental are included in the fee mentioned above. Industry Satellite Symposium organisers are entitled to 4 (four) industry session staff badges and 2 (two) free congress participant badges per time slot free of charge. All other costs will be covered by the organiser of the Industry Satellite Symposium.

Industry Science Exchange (ISE)
Industry Science Exchange sessions offer companies the opportunity to move from commercially oriented exposure to more focused, scientifically driven engagement with participants. 

These one-hour sessions are designed to provide industry the opportunity to interact with participants on a specific topic. To this end, the maximum number of participants that can be in the room at the same time is set at 100 and no seating is included in the fee as it should be a different session compared to the standard session layout of Industry Satellite Symposium.

The programme takes place in parallel with the official ECNP scientific programme and will be published as an industry activity together with other industry sessions and the exhibition.

Within the constraints set by the basic configuration of the room, organisers are free to shape this interactive session as they wish, but plans need the approval of ECNP and should fit into the time available for these sessions, including set-up and dismantling. It is possible to organise a two-hour session using two consecutive slots, but the programme will be published as one session.

The Industry Science Exchange sessions are open to all registered congress participants on a first-come-first-served basis due to the maximum capacity set.

Organisers of an Industry Science Exchange session will be charged a fixed fee of EUR 10,400 (excl. VAT) for a one hour slot. Industry Science Exchange organisers are also entitled to 2 (two) industry session staff badges per time slot free of charge.

All other costs will be covered by the organiser of the Industry Science Exchange.

Industry Product Theatre (IPT)
Hands-on Industry Product Theatre sessions (30 minutes) provide an interactive forum for engaging with participants on a broad range of issues, including new treatment approaches, the uses of specific medications, clinical insights, innovative services and product demonstrations.

Organisers of an Industry Product Theatre session will be charged a fixed fee of EUR 15,600 (excl. VAT). Organisers are entitled to 2 (two) industry staff badges per time slot free of charge. The sessions will take place in a separated area within the exhibition area. All other costs will be covered by the organiser of the Industry Product Theatre.
