EMBO Global Exchange is a new programme beginning in 2010 that extends, beyond European borders, commitment to catalyze scientific exchange. Building on the EMBO mission to recognize leading researchers, disseminate scientific information and foster talented scientists, EMBO Global Exchange offers new forums to establish long-lasting cooperation worldwide.
In this first phase, life scientists in India, China, Taiwan & Af rica can form closer ties with their colleagues in Europe. Likewise, European researchers benefit from more intense exchange with scientists in the emerging centers of excellence in these participating countries.
A working group of members of the EMBO Council assisted with development of this initiative and a new committee selected from the EMBO membership will guide and evaluate applications for the lecture courses and series that form EMBO Global Exchange. In future years, we hope that cooperations begun via this programme may well lead to the nomination of outstanding researchers in the participating countries who may be eligible for associate membership of EMBO.
