The EMBO Membership consists of EMBO Members, who reside or were elected while residing in an EMBC Member State, and EMBO Associate Members, who reside and were elected while residing outside of the EMBC Member States.
Candidates for EMBO Membership are exclusively nominated and elected by the existing EMBO Members. The initiative to nominate a candidate must come from one of the current EMBO Members; it is not possible to apply to become a member of EMBO.
A call for nominations for the election of new EMBO Members and EMBO Associate Members is sent to the existing membership in early October each year. Nominations must be submitted as complete by 1 December via the online nomination site.
The online voting system is open from 15 December until 1 February. The new EMBO Members will be announced shortly after the EMBO Council meeting in spring.
