The EMBL Alumni Association (EAA) is a charitable body, registered in Heidelberg with the VAT no: 32489/36784.

The mission of the EAA is to advance EMBL and the relevance of life science research in the scientific community and society at large, by fostering connections between the Laboratory, the alumni and the public.

While membership to the EAA is free, the cost of running the EAA, and supporting it in its mission requires resources, and we thank the EMBL community and friends for supporting us in this.
