Impact of the Meetings and Courses Programme

ICGEB has been providing excellent opportunities to the international scientific community for direct interaction with forerunners of internationally recognised science since 1988.

Every year the Centre funds and organises about 30 scientific events on cutting-edge topics in the field of Life Sciences, to facilitate interaction between internationally renowned scientists and young researchers from Member States.

Since 2010, the ICGEB has organised or sponsored a total of 255 scientific events with the participation of over 13000 researchers. In 2019 alone, the Programme included organisation/sponsorship of 33 scientific events and participation by almost 1100 international scientist, approximately 400 of whom received financial support.

Funding opportunities from ICGEB are also provided to scientist from Member States to participate in other international events.

In the context of the 2020 Meetings and Courses Programme, 56 proposals have been received from 18 Member States to organise a meeting at one of the three ICGEB Components, or in Member States.

Students and young scientists from ICGEB Member States also benefit from the opportunity to attend world class international events through additional sponsorship.
