Local Chapters

Local chapters serve as important platforms for scientific meetings and seminars, expertise and resource sharing and social gatherings. They provide alumni with a unified and powerful voice in discussions with local and national politicians and funding bodies, and help to further science in the relevant regions.

EMBL alumni reunions are held every 3-4 years. They are organised around other EMBL events such as the opening of a building or an anniversary. They are excellent opportunities to bring together staff and alumni over a stimulating science programme, while offering plenty of opportunities for reunions with former colleagues, and meeting new ones.

EMBL alumni and staff are welcome to join our 954 members on the EMBL alumni group in LinkedIn to exchange information, advertise job opportunities and endorse career skills.
The alumni group on facebook has been archived for growing too large, we apologise to all existing members. Plans for next steps with facebook are under discussion, and will be made available here.
