The FEBS Congress 2022: The Biochemistry Global Summit. Lisbon, 9–14 July 2022
About FEBS Congresses
The FEBS Congress is one of the most visible activities of FEBS. As one of the largest bio-congresses in Europe, featuring up to approx. 2500 attendees, the Congress provides a platform for international scientific exchange and showcases the newest developments in biochemistry, molecular biology and related areas. The Congress comprises plenary lectures presented by outstanding scientists including Nobel Laureates, a range of subject-specific symposia to provide the latest updates in different areas of bioscience research, extensive poster communications, and a variety of interesting workshops and other activities on related topics. The Congress is held annually in countries that have a Constituent Society of FEBS, moving to a different location each year.
The Congress is also immediately preceded by the FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF), a lively gathering of over 100 PhD students and young postdocs, whose attendance at this event and the ensuing FEBS Congress is funded by FEBS YSF awards. In addition, FEBS supports participation of a large number of young scientists in its annual Congress through the FEBS Bursaries scheme. Recently, a FEBS Fellows Meeting, bringing together senior recipients of FEBS Long-Term Fellowships, has also taken place ahead of the Congress approximately every other year.
