TrainingEMBL International PhD Programme

PhD Symposium

Started in October 2000, the annual EMBL International PhD Symposium in Heidelberg has developed into an acclaimed high quality scientific event from EMBL students for students all over the scientific world.

For this event, every autumn young researchers from numerous scientific institutes, mostly graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, gather at EMBL Heidelberg for listening to multidisciplinary lectures by top-level speakers and for communicating their own research results in poster sessions and panel discussions. The networking and contact-building between students and established scientists has always proven to be one of the highlights of the event.
