EMBO | FEBS Lecture Courses
EMBO and the Federation of European Biochemical Societies (FEBS) support up to five lecture courses each year on timely topics in biochemistry, molecular biology and related areas. With a focus on career development, EMBO | FEBS Lectures Courses provide up to 120 students and postdoctoral fellows with the opportunity to meet, interact with and learn from experts in their fields.
The maximum funding available for an EMBO | FEBS Lecture Courses is 30,000 euros (payment handled by FEBS).
In addition to financial support, organizers will receive the following:
- EMBO creates a dedicated webpage, including registration and abstract submission forms.
- EMBO and FEBS provide a poster and advertising in selected print and online media.
- Funds for an EMBO Young Investigator lecture, EMBO Science Policy lecture and EMBO Women in Science lecture lecture can be applied for.
- Funds for FEBS Youth Travel Fellowships to cover the attendance of up to 30 students/postdoctoral students can be obtained.
The focus of these meetings is on training and career development. In order to achieve this, the course should be facilitated by 18 – 24 lecturers (with a speakers-to-participants ratio of approximately 1:5).
The programme should include introductory lectures followed by state-of-the-art scientific talks. Poster sessions, oral presentations, round-table discussions and tutorials should provide opportunities for participants to interact with the lecturers.
Applications for EMBO | FEBS Lectures Courses are accepted annually. The deadline is 1 March for the lecture courses planned for the following year.
The application process is handled according to the FEBS application procedure.
All applications are treated in confidence and only publicized following acceptance of the funding conditions by the organizer.
