Molecular bioscience education posters at FEBS 2021: a new opportunity


You can now submit an education abstract as well as a research abstract to FEBS 2021!

The importance of teaching and training the next generation of molecular life scientists has long been recognized at FEBS Congresses through the inclusion of special sessions and posters on education in the program, and many participants at the event are involved with university teaching alongside their research work. We are therefore pleased to let you know that for FEBS 2021 you are invited to submit an abstract on educational issues as well as an abstract on your research through the same registration – that is, you can bring an education poster to the event as well as presenting your research poster/talk, without an additional cost.

With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing about a huge upheaval in university life science teaching over recent months, we envisage many extra experiences to share and ideas for the future to discuss. As FEBS Education Committee Chair Ferhan G. Sağin writes in a FEBS Network post on this opportunity:

‘Necessity is the mother of invention, and COVID-19 created a landslide of need where we all should contribute with educational research. Not only research but good practices, experiences, innovations, trials, mistakes, etc. all count to build a new educational era together. Many of us are envisioning education emerging from the pandemic stronger than before. So why not also come together to create initiatives for actions to guide the transformation of education systems after the pandemic?’

We encourage you to refer to this post for more background and several suggestions of issues to cover. In addition, find further general information on education abstracts on the Congress website via the links below:
