Students and young researchers of some FEBS Constituent Societies have come together to create the FEBS Junior Section. They develop joint activities and share resources, as well as open doors for young European scientists to opportunities outside their home countries by providing the relevant contacts and fostering communication within the network. They also organise academic and career online talks from key researchers, which they take turns to plan and deliver. Find out more about the FEBS Junior Section and join them!

Background on the FEBS junior section

In 2021 young representatives of some of the FEBS Constituent Societies started a network of students and young researchers across Europe: the FEBS Junior Section initiative. Their aims are to collaborate and share resources, as well as to encourage mobility across Europe for young scientists in the molecular life sciences.

The members of the FEBS Junior Section initiative take turns organizing monthly online talks on research and career topics. In 2021 they organized a talk from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and one from the team at EMBL-EBI that co-developed the AlphaFold database. In 2022 they started a new series of talks:
