EMBL General Brochure

Always at the frontier of the life sciences, EMBL is committed to advancing knowledge through its impactful fundamental research and providing tools and expertise to scientists in Europe and beyond who explore scientific questions at a molecular level. With its newest five-year programme, Molecules to Ecosystems, EMBL is applying its expertise to studying life in its natural context and exploring molecular mechanisms using fundamental discovery-driven research that can also address societal challenges.

Science in School magazine

Science in School aims to promote inspiring science teaching by encouraging communication among science teachers, scientists and all others involved in European science education. The non-profit journal is published and funded by EIROforum and is based at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany.

EMBL Programme

EMBL’s activities are planned in five-year cycles and outlined in the EMBL Programme. Developed internally with input from people across the organisation, the EMBL Programme is reviewed by our Scientific Advisory Committee and approved by EMBL Council.

Gender Equality Plan

The Gender Equality Plan (GEP) draws from EMBL’s wider Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy which envisions a more inclusive research and work culture that leverages diversity, in its broadest sense, to enhance EMBL’s role as a leader in the life sciences in Europe and globally. It was developed by the EDI Office in collaboration with relevant units and departments across EMBL, through a consultative and participatory process.
