Our office: The Alumni Relations Office is the interface between EMBL and its alumni. In discussion with the EMBL Director and the Alumni Association board, the Alumni Relations Office plans and executes alumni initiatives, activities and events which support the EMBL Alumni Association mission, and therefore EMBL and alumni. The office also manages all general alumni-related housekeeping with the support of EMBL departments (data management, communication, marketing, fundraising, board meetings).
