A big “Thank You” to our supporters

We would like to thank all our supporters of the 2018 EMBL Course and Conference Programme. With their help we were able to provide top-class training and keep the registration fees as low as possible allowing more people to profit from these opportunities. 86 companies sponsored a total of 25 events in Heidelberg and here is what some of them had to say about their experience:

“The audience comprised a very good mix of members from academic institutions and industry. We appreciated the rich interactions during the conference and friendly social events. Of course we were pleased to see a high interest in our activities and products and are confident we will build interesting collaborations in the future thanks to this event.” (Ectica Technologies)

“The conference program gathered a broad panel of microfluidic experts that presented the latest scientific discoveries in the field. The exhibition setting allowed me to easily interact with a broad range of participants and establish new valuable connections.” (miniFAB)

“The pre-conference workshop was very well attended and supported by the organizers, the booth location and interaction were excellent. The product fit for our portfolio of organoid culture products and tools was excellent and the organization, as always, was great, which goes a long way to creating an open and collaborative atmosphere that benefits exhibition.” (STEMCELL Technologies)

“EMBL is one of Europe’s most prominent life science institutions and as such gathers numerous eminent researchers across Europe and around the world. EMBL also covers a wide scope across the life science research allowing to target specific users. Compared to other scientific conferences, we also appreciate the good price / performance ratio of EMBL events.” (Wako Chemicals)

Event Advent Challenge 2018

Every year we embark on a quest to encrypt our events in senseless images for our event advent competition and it was overwhelming to see that so many of our Facebook followers sent us emails with the correct answers last year. The five winners were notified yesterday and we look forward to welcoming them at one of our events this year. We thank everyone else for their time and engagement and wish them more luck in the next competition.

And for everyone who missed what it was all about, here is the artwork that got so many people having to refresh their Facebook feed repeatedly in December. For a complete list of our 2019 events, please visit our website.
