Abstract Submission

The course is limited to 30 participants. For selection purposes you are required to submit a letter of motivation.

You can submit your motivation letter using the same account you use to apply.


  1. Include your relevant skills, experience and qualifications which show that you would be suitable for the course.

  2. Explain why you would like to attend, including what you can contribute and how you think you will benefit from the course.

Please note:

  • Our system only supports Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox

  • The 2,000-character limit refers to manually typed text (including spaces).

  • Copy-paste text may include hidden formatting that exceeds the character limit. We recommend either:

    1. saving as 'text only' in your editor or e-mail programme, or

    2. copy-pasting it into Notepad and then onto the website.

    Some web browsers do not accept abstracts close to the 2,000-character count.

  • If you have special symbols in your text, ensure you are using Unicode characters, otherwise these will not be recognised.


Please check the event’s website for full details on the fellowship types. The EMBL Corporate Partnership Programme (CPP) gives priority to countries in need of scientific strengthening for travel grants and priority to outstanding young scientists who will contribute extraordinarily to the meeting for fee waivers.

NOTE: All questions in the letter of motivation submission module are compulsory fields. If you do NOT wish to apply for a fellowship, please enter an X into the free fields to allow you to submit the page. Maximum characters including spaces is 255 for free field answers.

If applicable: Example of statement of support from your budget holding supervisor: “Joe Bloggs should attend this conference as he has new data to publish, but our lab cannot pay the travel as he has already attended another conference this year in Asia and our travel budget is overspent" (204 characters including spaces)
