EMBL welcomed Slovakia as its latest member state on 29 January 2018. The accession of the Slovak Republic to EMBL emphasises the organisation’s commitment to promoting European science and collaboration among researchers.

As a member state, Slovakia will receive access to all EMBL’s services and facilities. Its new status will also allow Slovakia to vote in EMBL’s Council, the laboratory’s governing body, where important decisions about the organisation are made. Up to two Slovakian delegates will join the Council contributing to shape EMBL’s future programmes.

Since 2014, when Slovakia became an EMBL prospect member state, the ties between the two parties have become stronger: EMBL and Slovakia have applied for joint grants, contributed to joint publications. To stimulate collaboration with the Slovak research community, EMBL held a Workshop at Comenius University Science Park (UCSP) in Bratislava, Slovakia, in 2017.
