Become an EMBL event reporter

EMBL’s programme of conferences and symposia is recognised as offering some of the best training and development for life researchers in the world. In an effort to share these unique events with scientists who cannot attend due to financial constraints, EMBL is offering free places to conference reporters who will post to social media from the conference and write a report summarising the meeting. This opportunity is being offered for all conferences and symposia taking place at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany and virtually.
