South African scientists access European research via EMBC agreement
Date:6/5/2008

Heidelberg, 5 June 2008 South African scientists will gain access to the latest thinking in molecular biology research through an agreement announced today by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The Government of the Republic of South Africa signed a cooperation agreement with the European Molecular Biology Conference (EMBC), the intergovernmental funding body for EMBO, allowing scientists from South Africa to participate in EMBO programmes and activities. The agreement also provides for some EMBO activities to occur in South Africa.

EMBO recognises and fosters talented scientists, empowering them to advance the field of molecular biology. The cooperation agreement facilitates access for South African scientists to core EMBO programmes, such as EMBO Fellowships, EMBO Courses & Workshops and EMBO Young Investigator Programme.

"Scientists the world over benefit from access to funding, the latest research information and networking with their colleagues," said Hermann Bujard, EMBO Executive Director. "EMBO is delighted to welcome South African scientists to join our networks that foster collaboration and information exchange."

EMBO annually will sponsor one practical course or workshop and one plenary lecture held in South Africa, thus encouraging local participation and awareness. Up to three South African scientists will have the opportunity to network with young European group leaders at EMBO Young Investigator meetings. EMBO Life Sciences Mobility Portal will post targeted information for reciprocal career development and funding opportunities between South Africa and Europe.
