The EMBL Alumni Association (EAA) board met in Heidelberg on 13 June. The two-day meeting was scheduled around Lab Day to offer EMBL staff and the board opportunities to meet, enjoy Lab Day activities and attend the John Kendrew Award Ceremony – a highlight in the EAA calendar. Chair of the EAA board, Giulio Superti-Furga, summarises:


“We have enhanced our website to make alumni resources and services more visible and accessible. Our members’ directory enables searches for alumni according to research interests and expertise. Take a moment to review this as well as your own record.”


“EMB-associated institutes – currently EMBO, EMBLEM and EMBL Ventures – can now join the EAA. We will adjust our statutes accordingly. EMBL partner institutes will be encouraged to set up their own Alumni Associations with our full support.”


“We have a new logo thanks to the efforts of our communications working group in collaboration with OIPA.”

40th anniversary celebrations

“With the Lab Day organisers, we have put together a special and interactive reunion programme with exciting surprise elements, taking place 18–19 July 2014. You will receive an invitation to register (free) later this year, together with details of other worldwide alumni events planned for 2014.”
