The EMBL Course and Conference Office was established in 1983 to support EMBL scientists in the organisation of conferences, medium-sized workshops, practical courses, EMBL internal and one-off events. With the opening of our unique EMBL Advanced Training Centre in March 2010 and an ever expanding Course and Conference programme, our team has been growing ever since.

As part of EMBL’s external training unit, the CCO exists to achieve EMBL’s mission to train scientists, students and visitors at all levels. The team’s service has created a framework where scientists can concentrate on science and critical discussion and its Course and Conference Programme facilitates networking opportunities between scientists at all stages of their careers.
