The Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) will launch the European Academy for Biomedical Science (ENABLE) project through a symposium that will take place in Barcelona, Spain, for young life sciences researchers from 15 to 17 November 2017.
15 November 2017 - 17 November 2017
The three-day symposia will include scientific debates, career sessions, and outreach activities jointly co-ordinated by young students from four European centres.
The ENABLE symposia are organised entirely by young scientists from the four research centres and cover three aspects for the careers of these young people, namely the discussion of cutting-edge research, the promotion of career development in science, and science outreach activities for schools and the public. The first symposium will be entitled ‘Breaking down complexity: innovative models and techniques in biomedicine.’
The project was awarded EUR 500,000 through the ‘Celebrating European Science’ section of the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. The event in Barcelona will be the first of four yearly gatherings that seek to train the next generation of leading biomedical scientists in Europe.
