Local chapters are informal annual or bi-annual meetings organised in a country by alumni with the support of the EMBL Alumni Office and the Alumni Association. They offer alumni a platform to stay in touch with EMBL and one another, and an opportunity to introduce their lab members to EMBL and the EMBL community. EMBL staff are welcome to these meetings.

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.

EMBL alumni and staff are welcome to join our 1010 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The alumni group on facebook has been archived for growing too large, we apologise to all existing members.
Since 2005, EMBL Alumni Relations has hosted a drinks reception for the EMBL and EMBO community at what used to be ELSO and is now The EMBO Meetings (TEM). This informal get-together offers the EMBL and EMBO community the opportuity to catch up over drinks, exchange information, reconnect with former colleagues and make new contacts. It is an excellent opportunity at an event which attracts a large number of our community. See former and up-coming drinks receptions.
