Keynote Lectures by EMBO Members

 

About

Meeting organizers can apply for funding for an EMBO Member or Associate Members to give a keynote lecture at their major international scientific meeting. This provides participants with an opportunity to find out about the recent research findings from EMBO Members' laboratories.

 

Applications are handled via the online application system. Priority will be given to applications received at least nine months prior to the start of the meeting. The lecture must be given the status of a keynote lecture, featured prominently within the programme and entitled "The EMBO Lecture".

 

Funding will only be provided for one EMBO Member per meeting. The EMBO Member must be working and/or be going to a meeting in an EMBC Member State.

 

Please note that funding is not available for EMBO Keynote Lectures at EMBO Conferences, EMBO Workshops or symposia co-funded by EMBO (but it is available for EMBO | FEBS Lecture Courses).
