ESF-EMBO Symposia

ESF-EMBO Partnership

The European Science Foundation (ESF) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO), within the framework of the ESF Research Conferences Scheme, have agreed to co-sponsor a series of meetings, to be known as ESF-EMBO Symposia, which will be at the highest scientific level with respect to topics and choice of participants.

ESF-EMBO Symposia are bringing together participants and experts from the Life Sciences and other related science disciplines to discuss topics that are of major importance to the scientific community in Europe. Topics are at the forefront of scientific research and interdisciplinary, focusing on Molecular Biology at the interface with other disciplines such as Chemistry, Physics, Computing Science, Mathematics and Modelling, Space Science, Clinical Medicine, Engineering, Environmental Science, Humanities and Social Sciences.

European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO)

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) promotes excellence in molecular life sciences in Europe by recognizing and fostering talented scientists. Since 1964, leading scientists are elected annually to become EMBO Members based on proven excellence in research. Members number more than 1,400 today. Fifty-three scientists from the EMBO membership have received the Nobel Prize.
Leading peer-reviewed journals – The EMBO Journal, EMBO reports and Molecular Systems Biology – span a broad spectrum of topics of molecular biology and reflect how science is shaping the world. A new journal, EMBO Molecular Medicine, publishes original research offering molecular insight into the cellular and systemic processes underlying human disease.
EMBO funding, training and networking activities impact thousands of scientists every year, promoting collaboration in all areas of molecular biology – within its 27 member states, in Europe and neighbouring countries, and worldwide.
