The Estonian Biochemical Society

Mission & Vision

The Estonian Biochemical Society (EBS) aims to promote and support all kinds of scientific and teaching activities in biochemistry and related fields in Estonia.

Key Activities

  • Traditionally EBS holds The Annual Meeting of the society, which includes participation of invited speakers and
  • Organises an Annual Summer School in the Estonian countryside for graduate and undergraduate students in biochemistry and related specialties.


EBS was founded in 1959 in Tallinn as a branch of Soviet Federal Biochemical Society. In 1991 EBS became independent and joined FEBS as a member.


EBS has 94 members (2005), most of whom are from two leading Estonian Universities: University of Tartu and Tallinn University of Technology. However, EBS has members also from Estonian Research Institutes such as the Institute of Chemical Physics and Biophysics.

EBS accepts scientists with an Estonian background working in Europe and overseas as non-residential members.
