Are you an EMBO Long-Term Fellow?

Please register to EMBO fellowsNet
Registration is free.

EMBO fellowsNet is the web-based portal where our fellows, scientists who have benefited from funding and support for post-doctoral research from EMBO Long-Term Fellowships, can stay connected with the EMBO community. Once registered, you can receive news updates from EMBO, upload your contact information and publication records, and communicate with other EMBO Fellows.


EMBO organizes annual Fellows Meetings for those fellows who have recently completed their long-term fellowships.

This annual event aims to bring fellows together in a friendly atmosphere for them to share their experiences, meet other fellows, and establish new collaborations and contacts. Each fellow can present his/her work with prior submission of a short abstract, which is also published in the meeting booklet. Fellows have the opportunity to meet the EMBO fellowships team and give feed-back and suggestions on the activity of the programme.

In recent years, a Science Communication Workshop has been included in the meeting, providing more information about communications with the public and media.

Next EMBO Fellows Meeting will take place on 12 - 15 June 2014 at EMBL Heidelberg.

Since 2004, a biennial Meeting in the US has been held for EMBO Fellows working overseas. The last EMBO US Fellows Meeting was held on 16 - 18 November 2012 at the Rockefeller University in New York, US.

The next EMBO US Fellows Meeting will take place in 2014.


You can find here the documentation from previous meetings.


Invite an EMBO Editor

EMBO Editors are available to visit your institute to speak about the editorial process and scientific publishing at EMBO.

The Editors are also happy to tour laboratories, discuss your work and  talk about scientific publishing as a career choice.


Adéquation Germany - registered charity

by EMBO Fellow Emmanuel Reynaud

During my PhD, I was involved in humanitarian action schemes in West Africa aiming to improve life quality by working in coordination with locals structures (associations, authorities etc).  In 2001, I joined the laboratory of Rainer Pepperkok at EMBL with an EMBO Long-term Fellowship. In 2003, together with other enthusiast fellows I founded Adéquation Germany , an officially registered charity. The main focus of this charity is not to collect money but to recycle unwanted lab equipment which can then be sent to labs in Eastern Europe and Africa.


Looking for volunteer Authors for Basic Books on Life Sciences

Dear Fellows,

Prof. Roy McWeeny, Member of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science ( ) and Emeritus Professor in Theoretical Chemistry at the University of Pisa, has dedicated many years of voluntary work to developing a series of Basic Books in Science that are freely available via the Internet to users around the world, having in mind particularly the needs of those who live in places where access to quality sources for learning is difficult or impossible.
Information about this effort is available at .
