Being a biologist requires more than a deep understanding of biology. Scientists are part of society. The course thus features events and lectures that are extra-scientific, such as seminars on good scientific practice, scientific communication, patenting, participation in Science & Society conferences and lectures as well as active taking part in scientific seminars and engaged visits to EMBL facilities.

The schedule on these pages contains such events. They are planned throughout the course, interspersed between the scientific modules, and begin with the introductory lectures to the course on the first day.
