The 20th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF), a satellite meeting of the 45th FEBS Congress, will bring together around 100 talented postdocs and PhD students from across the FEBS area who are working in the molecular and cellular biosciences. It will take place in Lovran, Croatia, from 1st to 4th July 2020. The gathering – organized by young scientists for young scientists – enables participants to present their scientific results, discuss ideas and get to know each other in a friendly international atmosphere, before moving on to the larger Congress. In addition to presentations from the participants, there will be keynote lectures, advice and information on career-related issues, and a social program.

Full details of the eligibility criteria are on the YSF applications page. Applicants must submit an abstract to the YSF and Congress as first author.
