Support EMBL

Our thanks

We take great delight in showing our supporters the impact of their donations and involving them in the vibrant life at EMBL’s sites.

Every gift to EMBL makes a true difference. Be it through regular dialogue and communications, behind-the-scenes insights and virtual as well as on-site events, our supporters become part of the EMBL Community and get close to our exciting science and amazing scientists. EMBL supporters also enjoy connecting and networking with each other and meeting those that are benefiting from their generosity. 

Please find out about our Code of Good Practice relating to philanthropic support, and about how we protect your data.


Throughout the year, the Office of Resource Development hosts a range of public and private events that are a fun and exciting way to get involved and show your support while learning more about what we do at EMBL.

EMBL events are unique in their combination of exciting science and entertainment. Below is a list of our upcoming events calendar, for a glimpse of what to expect at future events.
