Whatever you did at EMBL, wherever you are in your career, your support can make a big difference to the ongoing success of the alumni network and EMBL. It has never been easier to get involved:

Strengthen the EMBL alumni network

Are you a member of the EMBL Alumni Association? Membership is not automatic, so please contact us to check your status. By becoming a member and keeping your membership profile up to date, you are visible and accessible to EMBL and its community.

Share with us your recent discoveries, awards or initiatives. Help us to acknowledge and celebrate your continuing success; harness the alumni network to promote your achievements, spark new collaborations, and inspire others.

Attend, host or help organise events for the alumni community. Throughout the year and around the world, EMBL alumni gather for local chapter meetings, reunions, and networking events – the perfect occasions to strengthen alumni bonds of fellowship, professional association and institutional affiliation.

Utilise EMBL Resources

From state-of-the-art facilities and services to world-leading training and events, you can access and promote EMBL resources that could make all the difference to yours and others’ career development and success.

Promote EMBL

Make your connection to EMBL visible: include your time at EMBL in your online biographies; add the EMBL logo to your social media profiles; don’t forget to credit EMBL for EMBL-related discoveries in interviews and statements.

Share and preserve your contribution to EMBL’s history with your stories and material contributions for the EMBL Archive. From photographs to unpublished work, the EMBL Archive is capturing the narrative of EMBL’s science, people and places.
