We’re delighted to invite EMBL and EMBO staff and alumni attending The EMBO Meeting (TEM) in Birmingham, or resident in the UK, to join us at the annual informal EMBL drinks reception at TEM.

The aim of this informal get-together is to offer the EMBL community past and present the opportunity to catch up over drinks, to exchange information, reconnect with former colleagues and make new contacts. Additionally, we would like to use the opportunity to strengthen ties with our community.

We very much hope you can join us, and ask you to register your interest to attend the reception by Friday 31st August.
If you have not registered for The EMBO Meeting, please indicate this on the link above, so that we can issue you an entry pass to our reception.

The reception will be held from 17:00-19:00 in Hall 11A of the Birmingham International Convention Centre (ICC) on Monday 7th September and is open to EMBL and EMBO staff and alumni. Dinner for those interested will be at Cielo (this part is at own cost).

We very much hope that you will be able to join us at the reception (and potentially dinner), and look forward to your registration on the above link.

Best wishes,

Matthias and Mehrnoosh
