India Embo Launch

India EMBO Partnership Launch Series

The Government of India, through the Department of BioTechnology (DBT) recently signed an agreement with the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC) and the European Molecular Biology Organisation (EMBO), inducting India as a member state of the EMBC and EMBO. The implications of this agreement for Indian science are far-reaching, as it will provide impetus to the strengthening of links between Indian and European life sciences research.

As part of the agreement Indian scientists will be able to participate in the same EMBO programmes as researchers from all other
member states: 

EMBO Long-term/ Short-term fellowships 
EMBO Courses and Workshops
EMBO Young Investigators Programme
EMBO Science Policy Programme 
EMBO Global Meetings
The EMBO Meeting
EMBO Publications

The launch of this partnership was accompanied by a series of events across India. At each event scientists from Europe and India as well as EMBO representatives talked about science and opportunities afforded by the partnership. You can find the programme of the events below.

The recordings and live streaming of the talks will be available on the IndiaBioscience website. Visit this page or the homepage for updates.
