Welcome to the EMBL Visitor & Scholar Programme

EMBL is one of the most renowned scientific laboratories in Europe. Promoting scientific excellence and delivering services to the scientific community are amongst its principal goals. Those are mirrored, among others, through our extensive Visitor and Scholar Programme that enables scientists and students from all over the world to benefit from new technologies and modern equipment at the five EMBL sites.

Visitors come to the EMBL for the purpose of doing research in collaboration with the EMBL staff or pursuing their own research, taking advantage of the EMBL environment. Scientists may come to receive advanced training in a specific area, or they may participate in long-term collaborations.

The Visitor and Scholar Programme is part of the EMBL International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT) and provides visiting scientists with logistical and organisational support, to make their stay at EMBL a pleasant and productive experience.
