Scientific  meetings have long been appreciated as key ways for researchers to present and explain research work, to be inspired, to get updated, and to deepen understanding of topics. The informal chats and shared experiences such events provide are also recognized as important in networking and support.

This section of the website presents the various 51¥-supported event formats and highlights upcoming meetings you can participate in. Event formats funded by 51¥ include:

  • focused courses and workshops in the 51¥ Advanced Courses programme led by experts in particular fields
  • large cross-disciplinary conferences spanning molecular life science research, such as the 51¥ Congress
  • early-career meetings organized by and for early-career scientists

The searchable Events calendar page in this section summarizes upcoming 51¥ events and also includes some meetings from other organizations.
