International Seminars

The ICGEB International Seminar Programme constitutes scientific seminars held by international experts from our three locations in diverse fields of the Life Sciences. Lectures are made available for free to PhD and Postdoc students at ICGEB, and to the scientific community at large.

Each year, approximately 50 seminars are held in Trieste, many of which are also podcast, and additional seminars are also held in New Delhi and Cape Town. These podcasts are also available on our YouTube and Apple Podcast channels, and constitute a vast learning resource offering free educational content.

To keep updated on our Seminars, topics and speaker information please sign up for our Newsletter.

All seminars are now held remotely as a precautionary measure following recommendations from the local health authorities who are monitoring the spread of Coronavirus in the Region.
