Science Education

Formerly known as European Learning Laboratory for the Life Sciences

Our inspiring educational experiences share the scientific discoveries of EMBL with young learners aged 10-19 years and teachers in Europe and beyond. We belong to EMBL’s Science Education and Public Engagement office.

EMBL Insight Lecture series

The EMBL Insight Lectures represent a lecture series held annually by scientists who are working at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.

The idea behind the EMBL Insight Lectures is to inform young people about current trends in life science research and to show how research is influencing our every day lives.

The presentations are specifically designed for students and teachers alike who are interested in life science research and who want to make cutting-edge research a part of their biology lessons. The slides offer attractive graphical illustrations, short text explanations which are reduced to the point and a coherent design which makes it easy to understand complex topics.

Recordings of the lectures are available on our website. The lectures cover a wide range of life sciences topics, from genomics and neuroscience, to ocean diversity, advances in light microscopy and the study of macromolecules.
