Hamburg, October 2019

2020 will see the prestigious Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators turn 25 years. This will be celebrated with an event welcoming back high-calibre Award Alumni to talk about their science and careers: The Young European Investigators Conference held at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, on June 25, 2020. This free one-day conference is open to all scientists in biomedical research. The scientific program is organized by former winners Simon Boulton (The Francis Crick Institute, United Kingdom) and Óscar Fernández-Capetillo (CNIO, Spain & Karolinska Institute, Sweden). The event includes networking coffee breaks and lunch and a gala buffet in the evening. It will be rounded off with a talk from the newly minted 2020 Award winner.
