On the basis of this, the study came to the conclusion that it is not without consequences to take on a chairmanship for a congress. However, when taking into account the benefits that come with hosting the trade-off is positive.
Facts about the survey:
The questionnaire was sent to 483 people who had within the last eight years: been involved in chairmanship, conducted scientific research, and been working in a research institution in Denmark. Of the 483 people, 309 participated in the survey. This is a relatively high response rate of 64%.
61% of the participants had a primary role as local host or chair, 30% were members of an Organising Committee and 9% were contributors or in a supporting role without any formal role in the committee structure.
