European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO)

The European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) promotes excellence in life sciences in Europe through a range of programmes and activities. EMBO programmes and activities are funded by the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC), an inter-governmental organisation that comprises 29 member states.

Together with EMBO, EMBC promotes a strong pan-European approach to research.

The organisation nurtures the scientific careers of researchers at all stages. To maintain high standards in research, EMBO offers a range of courses and workshops for high quality training in state-of-the-art techniques. EMBO also provides various funding opportunities and awards, such as Fellowships, the Young Investigator Programme, Travel Grants and a Women in Science Award, to stimulate a positive environment for high impact research.

UK scientists are able to benefit from EMBO programmes by applying directly to EMBO.
