Welcome to the First Online EMBL PhD Symposium
Life Sciences - Shaping the future!
The goal of the First Online EMBL PhD Symposium was to provide a meeting place for the larger audience of people involved in life sciences to discuss the state-of-the-art and perspectives of development. The future of scientific communication itself was also be discussed. In addition to scientific topics, we invited the participants to our career development forum that helped to shape a better future for scientists by sharing your experiences.
Rather than using a conventional meeting format with formal presentations and rather limited options for interaction between the invited speakers and the participants, we introduced an open internet-based platform for everyone interested to ensure that all opinions were heard. We invited prominent scientists to share their vision on development of life sciences in selected fields in a form of web-based presentations and invited everyone else to further discuss it and present their own views in a similar fashion.
The symposium is over but the content is now available for everybody.
