2017 courses and conferences

Check out the newly revealed programme for 2017

2017 EMBL events

One of EMBL’s key missions is to develop the brightest young life scientists. A key instrument to achieve this is EMBL’s renowned programme of courses and conferences. Check out what will be on offer in 2017. Abstract submission and registration are now open for many events.

Reduced rates for PhD candidates

Are you studying for your PhD? We have reduced the conference entry fee for PhD candidates to make events more accessible.

Event reporter programme

We are trialling a new programme with limited free places available for participants who are willing to report on the conference or symposium. This allows people to follow events on social media if they cannot attend in person and opens places to those who could not fund them otherwise.

Childcare options

Many conferences taking place at EMBL Heidelberg provide onsite childcare – for the next generation of scientists.

Want to sponsor a conference?

Our world renowned events are an ideal platform for your company to reach out to relevant and interested target groups.

We offer a variety of event sponsoring possibilities at conferences and symposia taking place at EMBL Heidelberg, with the flexibility to select a set sponsorship package or combine individual sponsorship options to suit your event budget.
