ENABLE biomedical conference on 7-9 November 2018 in Copenhagen

From 7-9 November 2018 the inaugural ENABLE conference will take place in Copenhagen. ENABLE is the first European symposium organized by and for PhD students and Postdocs.

Early bird registration ends on 31 July 2018. A considerable number of travel grants are available for eligible participants who actively participate via poster presentation, short talk or micro talk. The deadline to apply for travel grants is June 15.

This initiative seeks to promote excellence in the biomedical sciences in Europe by supporting young researchers, strengthening scientific careers, and bringing biomedicine closer to society. To achieve this, ENABLE is organized in three main pillars:

  • Scientific symposium: Two full days on which young scientists from all over Europe will learn about different biomedical fields and cutting edge techniques through talks, masterclasses, and informal chats with renowned scientists.
  • Career day: A full day on which participants will be able to attend different workshops, chats with professionals, and learn about career opportunities at the “opportunity fair”, in which companies from the publishing world to the biotechnological and pharmaceutical sectors will be present.
  • Outreach activities: To allow participants to explain biomedicine among citizens and bring science closer to society.

The ENABLE conference is about opening academia from within to promote a new research culture through a real exchange between young scientists, renowned researchers, industry professionals and citizens. Moreover, unlike other conferences, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows are in charge of the event as a way ofempowering them in choosing their future.

This initiative has been cofunded by the European Commission led by four research institutes (IRB BarcelonaRIMLSNNF CPRSEMM) and a science communication agency (Scienseed).
