The EMBO Early Career Lecture Courses provide funding to train PhD students and postdoctoral researchers in Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia, and Turkey.

They are aimed at providing participants, primarily PhD students and postdoctoral researchers, with an overview of the life sciences.

Speakers should be leading experts in their field. Underlying concepts of a particular field should be made accessible to participants with varying scientific background. Discussion sessions, tutorials on relevant techniques and other topics, journal clubs, as well as poster sessions, and other activities that promote interaction between students and lecturers should be scheduled.

The Early Career Lecture Courses can include up to 200 participants and last between two to three days. The courses must take place in one of the countries listed above; organizers can be based anywhere.
