ENABLE Symposium 2019 for Biomedical Science (13-15 November 2019)

image001The Scientific and Local Organizing Committees of ENABLE 2019 invites you to the third ENABLE conference entitled “Next-generation life scientists: Side by side to break new ground”, which will take place in Nijmegen on 13-15 November 2019. The ENABLE (European Academy for Biomedical Science) conferences are organized by and for PhD students and Postdocs and seek to promote excellence in biomedical sciences in Europe by supporting young researchers and strengthening their scientific careers. ENABLE is co-funded by the European Commission and is led and organized by four research institutes (IRB Barcelona,RIMLS,NNF CPR,SEMM) and a science communication agency (Scienseed).

Join for three days of ENABLE 2019and have the opportunity to participate in:

  • Science career day A full day (Wednesday the 13th) during which participants will be able to attend workshops and career chats with professionals. Also, participants will have the chance to learn about career opportunities at the “Job Fair”, where various companies from different sectors (publishing, biotech, pharma) will be present.
  • Outreach activities An important part of ENABLE is focused on bridging the gap between scientists and society. To this end, ENABLE organizes outreach activities that allow participants to explain biomedicine among citizens and bring science closer to society. Particularly the pub talks on Wednesday night, organized in pubs in the city of Nijmegen, are an excellent opportunity for young researchers to bring their science to the public. Although not obligatory, we do encourage participants to submit a layman’s abstract for this unique and fun event.
  • Scientific symposium Two full days (Thursday the 14th and Friday the 15th) during which young scientists from all over Europe will learn about different biomedical fields and cutting-edge techniques through scientific talks and informal chats with renowned scientists. Also, the scientific symposium provides an excellent platform for young researchers to present their own work in short talks, which are selected from the abstracts.

Registration for this event is now open.

Early bird discounts are available until June 30th.

A considerable number of travel grants are available for participants who actively participate via poster presentation, short talk or a pub talk. The deadline to apply for travel grants is June 30th.
