EMBL is Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences. Promoting scientific excellence and delivering services to the scientific community are amongst its principal goals. Those are mirrored, among others, through our Scientific Visitor Programme that enables scientists and students from all over the world to benefit from new technologies and state-of-the-art equipment at the six EMBL sites.

The Scientific Visitor Programme is part of the EMBL International Centre for Advanced Training (EICAT) and provides scientific visitors with logistical and organisational support, to make their stay at EMBL a productive and pleasant experience.

Given a mutual interest, visitors can join one of the over 80 EMBL research groups at different stages of their scientific career for an active collaboration pursuing their own research and taking advantage of the EMBL environment.
