EMBO Events

 

Workshops

EMBO Workshops are original meetings providing scientists from different fields with an opportunity to discuss common themes and exchange cross-disciplinary results. A limited number of travel grants are available for scientists from countries in need of scientific strengthening. List of all upcoming conferences can be found in our Events calendar. Please refer to the individual workshop website for further information.

 

EMBO | FEBS Lecture Courses

EMBO and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS)  support joint lecture courses on relevant, timely scientific topics in biochemistry, molecular biology and related areas.

A limited number of travel grants are available for scientists from countries in need of scientific strengthening. List of all upcoming conferences can be found in our Events calendar. Please refer to the individual lecture course website for further information.

 

Laboratory Management Courses

EMBO Laboratory Management Courses, help scientists to run their labs more effectively.

 

The courses cover topics such as:

  • Select the right staff;
  • Develop your team;
  • Communicate effectively;
  • Delegate successfully;
  • Manage laboratory conflicts.

Participants gain hands-on experience through practical exercises such as role-play situations and discussion groups. The courses were developed with the help of management consulting teams.

 

There are two types of courses offered, one for postdocs and one for independent group leaders.

 

Courses are open to all life scientists and may be free of charge for EMBO Long-Term Fellows , EMBO Young Investigators and Installation Grantees . 

 

Lecture Courses

EMBO Lecture Courses are original meetings providing scientists from different fields with an opportunity to discuss common themes and exchange cross-disciplinary results. EMBO Lecture Courses are expected to be stand-alone and not satellite meetings. Typically, a maximum of 120 participants (including speakers) should be accepted. EMBO Lecture Courses can take place in  EMBC Member States , EMBC Associate Member States or  cooperating partner countries , although organizers can be based anywhere. If you wish to apply for an EMBO Lecture Course held in a country that does not yet have a cooperation agreement, you should first contact the programme manager.

 

Practical Courses

EMBO Practical Courses promote the transfer of new methods and emerging techniques to a broad number of laboratories. Participating students are introduced to the theory of and receive hands-on training in the technique. Facilitators are often those scientists who pioneered the technique. Participants are enabled to implement newly learned techniques in their home laboratories.

 

A limited number of travel grants are available for scientists from countries in need of scientific strengthening. List of all upcoming conferences can be found in our Events calendar. Please refer to the individual practical course website for further information.

 

EMBO | EMBL Science & Society conference

Promotes mutual interest, understanding, and dialogue between biologists, specialists from related disciplines, policy makers and members of the public interested in how modern biology affects society.

 

Keynote Lectures

EMBO Members  give keynote lectures at major international scientific meetings. This provides the wider scientific community with an opportunity to find out about the recent research findings from EMBO Members’ laboratories.

 

EMBO | EMBL Symposia

EMBO|EMBL Symposia  focus on interdisciplinary topics in the life sciences, with a particular emphasis on areas that are just starting to gather momentum. The excitement surrounding the topic and the stimulating atmosphere are expected to attract hundreds of scientists and significantly move the research field forward.

A limited number of travel grants are available for scientists from countries in need of scientific strengthening. List of all upcoming conferences can be found in our Events calendar. Please refer to the symposia websites for further information.

 

Global Exchange Lecture Courses

EMBO Global Activities  intends to expand the EMBO philosophy of catalyzing scientific exchange and fostering talented researchers beyond European borders. EMBO Global Exchange Lecture Courses offer local scientists an opportunity to learn from experts about the background theory and latest developments in diverse fields.

 

India|EMBO Symposia

EMBO and the Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance (referred to as ‘India Alliance’) jointly fund up to three meetings per year in India. The meetings should address discovery and innovation through an interdisciplinary approach, with the speakers and participants discussing important global challenges in the context of the life sciences.

 

Conferences & Conference Series

EMBO Conferences and EMBO Conference Series aim to support European scientific communities, by enabling groups of scientists to regularly meet and discuss topics with leaders in the field. These conferences cover different and evolving aspects of important and relatively broad subject areas. A limited number of travel grants are available for scientists from countries in need of scientific strengthening. List of all upcoming conferences can be found in our Events calendar. Please refer to the individual conference website for further information.

 

Note: As of 2018, EMBO Conferences will be renamed into EMBO Workshops. Both labels support meetings of very similar or overlapping formats, so that two distinctive labels are not justified anymore. EMBO will continue to fund repeat and large scientific events as EMBO Workshops.
