Fellows' Meetings


EMBO organises Fellows’ Meetings and Fellow Alumni Meetings, alternating each year.


The Fellows' Meetings are for those fellows who have recently completed their Postdoctoral Fellowships (awarded three years prior).


The meeting aims to bring fellows together in a friendly atmosphere for them to share their experiences, establish new collaborations and contacts. Each fellow can present his/her work with prior submission of a short abstract, published in the meeting booklet. A Science Communication Workshop provides more information about communications with the public and media.


The next EMBO Fellows' Meeting will take place in 2021 at EMBL Heidelberg.


The Alumni Meetings will accept the first 100 registered attendees from a collection of three award years, those awarded their Postdoctoral Fellowships six to eight years prior.


The meeting is not restricted to active researchers so if you have taken an alternative career path since your fellowship, we would love to see you there! The meeting is a great opportunity to network and interact with your peers.


The first Alumni meeting will take place from the 19th to the 21st of June 2020 for those awarded in 2012, 2013 or 2014. 


At both meetings, fellows have the opportunity to meet the EMBO Fellowships team and give feedback and suggestions on the activity of the programme.
