Event description

Description

Open to all
The aim of this event is to get EMBL better known in Norway as an international research organisation which offers life science training, services, and infrastructure to scientists at all levels. There will also be discussions and presentations on the role of the two research-funding organisations EMBO and HFSP.
Speakers include EMBL staff, fellows and alumni from leading universities and scientific organisations, industry, medical hospitals and the ministry in Norway, as well as representatives from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP), the European Research Council and EMBL's partner institute in Norway.
This is an excellent opportunity to strengthen ties and explore collaboration and resource opportunities between EMBL, our alumni and their networks.
