YSF Welcome

Dear YSF participants,

In these uncertain times of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 20th FEBS Young Scientists’ Forum (YSF), originally planned for Lovran, Croatia, and already postponed from 2020, will now be held in a virtual format.

Nonetheless, we are sure this will be an enjoyable and valuable, albeit different, experience. We will work our magic to make the most of various online meeting tools and give you the best of two worlds – science and social interactions – through four mornings from June 15th to June 18th, 2021. In such a way you will have some time to gather your thoughts and have a break before meeting again online at the virtual 45th FEBS Congress from July 3rd till July 8th, 2021.

The 20th FEBS YSF will retain most of the scientific programme prepared for 2020, and we will be presenting the new schedule in this section of the FEBS Congress website in the coming weeks. The online event will bring together about 100 PhD students and postdocs from across the FEBS area, with FEBS continuing to support those selected by covering their registration fee for the ensuing virtual 45th FEBS Congress. Participants at the YSF will present and discuss their research from biochemistry and related fields, benefit from career skills development, and have an excellent opportunity for a rewarding scientific and personal experience, including exchanging ideas with colleagues and establishing new acquaintances.

We are looking forward to welcoming you online!
