A webinar introducing cooperation opportunities between EMBL and Estonia will take place on February 18 from 13:00 to 16:15 (EET).

European Molecular Biology Laboratory is an intergovernmental organisation and Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences. EMBL is supported by 27 member states, two associate member states and two prospect member states. Estonia has been a prospect member since June 2019. 

The webinar will give an overview of the added value of joining EMBL to Estonian science in three thematic blocks by EMBL representatives and Estonian researchers. The discussion will also focus on how to create synergies between the two parties.
