 The European Student Think Tank (EST) is currently seeking new team members for itse Working Group on Public Health & Policy.

What’s the prospect?

As a think tank for youth, by youth, EST occupies a unique position: it informs its young audience about European affairs. With the current pandemic scenario, public health and governmental policies have taken a pivotal role in European affairs. As CoViD-19 has brought about several administrative and health-related policy changes, the EST WG on Public Health and Policy will represent the youth at the European Union level. 

What’s my role?

As a member of the Working Group on Public Health in 2022/2023, your main task will be to conduct research on your selected subtopic of public health or public  policies, as well as to produce short papers. This platform will allow you to hold student workshops, participate in debates and interact with policy-makers. Becoming part of the EST Working Group on Public Health also means entering a wide-ranging network of engaged students, as well as the acquisition of key professional skills in academic writing, analysis and project management. As a student-run group, we coordinate online and put great emphasis on granting volunteers space for their primary responsibilities at university and work. You should expect to commit an average of 3-4 hours per week to this extra-curricular project, which will adapt to your own schedule.

What’s EST looking for?

  • be enrolled in a degree in medical sciences, social sciences, public health, health policy, political science (Bachelor, Master, PhD level, Medical internship, or Medical residency);
