This global event will connect EMBL with its alumni community worldwide via live stream. It is also open to all members of the community who are in Heidelberg at the time to join the speakers, performers and audience at the Klaus Tschira Auditorium at EMBL Heidelberg in person.

The occasion will begin with EMBL's new Director General, Edith Heard, introducing herself to EMBL's global community and addressing the role of alumni in EMBL's future plans.

This will be followed by a virtual trip around the world to connect with the alumni community, hear their unique perspectives from the field, and gather their inspiring messages and wishes for EMBL.

The hour will be sprinkled with live guests and performances on this special year - the 20th anniversary of the EMBL Alumni Association - don't miss it!
