Original Invitation:
On behalf of the International Headache Society and the European Headache Federation, we are pleased to announce the 1st IHS/EHF Headache Research Academy, which will take place in Baku, Azerbaijan on April 21-22, 2022.

The target audience of this meeting is young clinicians and scientists who have an interest in headache science and who are based in the Caucasus region and geoculturally related areas. The concept is to bring juniors with significant experience in headache research from Western Europe and USA to the region to present their own work, network with and provide inspiration to the regional delegates. The meeting will be facilitated by top international experts, who will lecture on the latest advances and methodology in the field and provide the delegates with the tools they need to start research of their own. A key goal of the meeting is to promote local research activities and to put research ideas into motion. Active participation is required from the delegates who will produce four high quality review articles on headache-related topics for publication in Cephalalgia and The Journal of Headache and Pain.  

The faculty of the Academy will consist of thirteen international senior research leaders in the headache field. Faculty members will invite 16 junior delegates with significant experience in headache research. Twenty-four scholarships will be available for regional junior delegates from Caucasus, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe.

Twenty-four scholarships are available for applicants from Caucasus, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe. Scholarships will be reserved to 4 delegates from Azerbaijan, 2 from Russia, 2 from Georgia, 2 from Turkey, 2 from Iran, while 12 will be available to delegates from other countries.

Scholarships include registration, and a EUR 500 grant for accommodation and travel expenses.

Registration is open for everyone interested in attending.
