  • The lecture must be advertised as EMBO Young Investigator Lecture in the conference programme.
  • The speaker should be introduced at the meeting with a slide stating that he or she is giving an EMBO Young Investigator Lecture.
  • EMBO will not cover an honorarium for the speaker or costs towards the general organization of the meeting.
  • Travel costs should keep within the guidelines in the EMBO Young Investigator travel guidelines.
