Junior Sections of FEBS Societies: Room for Junior Sections of FEBS Societies

Junior Sections

To bring together students and young researchers in the molecular life sciences from all over Europe, the Junior Sections of the ÖGMBT (Austria), GBM (Germany), SIB (Italy), NVBMB (the Netherlands) SEBBM (Spain), and the Biochemical Society (UK) have collaborated with FEBS to establish an initiative: the Junior Sections of FEBS Societies.

We want to develop joint activities and share resources, as well as open doors for young European scientists to opportunities outside their home countries by providing the relevant contacts and thus fostering the communication within the network. Most importantly though, this emerging platform is still very dynamic and lives on the ideas that you and your society’s members are all welcome to contribute.
