Young Investigators


EMBO chooses some of the best young group leaders in Europe, through a highly competitive annual selection to join the EMBO Young Investigator programme.


During their three-year tenure in the programme, EMBO Young Investigators receive a range of financial and practical benefits. These support them during a critical stage of their career, and help them realize their potential as world-class researchers.


A key aspect of the programme is networking. EMBO Young Investigators benefit from a vibrant and broad network of over 400 scientists, made up of current and former Young Investigators, and recipients of an EMBO Installation Grant.


Other initiatives such as EMBO Young Investigator Lecture Grants aim to raise the profile of the young group leaders.
