Organising committee, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE

Initially funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, the first four ENABLE conferences were held in the cities hosting the headquarters of the four entities leading the project: the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) in Barcelona, Spain; the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) in Nijmegen, The Netherlands; The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research (CPR) in Copenhagen, Denmark; and the Scuola Europea di Medicina Molecolare (SEMM), in Milan, Italy. In this new cycle of conferences, FEBS, IUBMB and the four core ENABLE institutions have joined forces to share ENABLE best practices with other international research institutions. To this end, in addition to the four core research centres, other institutions can apply to become associated centres and host one of the events. For the 2024 event, FEBS-IUBMB-ENABLE will actively search for an associated centre in a non-European country to ensure that one of the events is held on another continent.

Junior Section of NVBMB, NVBMB

Young-NVBMB is the Junior Section of the Netherlands Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NVBMB). It is a collaboration between NVBMB and several student organizations in the field of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology across the Netherlands (e.g., GLV Idun, SV Mens, ULSV Amino, CODON, and SvBMT Protagoras). Young-NVBMV was set up in 2021 to support the career development and networking opportunities of students and young researchers in the molecular life sciences in the Netherlands. Young-NVBMB organise and deliver their own activities under the supervision of their Society and all members of the Junior Section are members of NVBMB. Young-NVBMB are also part of the FEBS Junior Section. To find out more about Young-NVBMB read their overview post and check out the online talks and other activities they deliver, accesible from the 'Popular contributions' section below.

Keith Elliott

Member, FEBS Education Committee

I spent 40 years teaching and researching, and developed a particular interest in education and career development. I chaired the Education Committee and was Careers advisor for the UK Biochemical Society. In these roles, and my work with students at the University of Manchester, I realised how important it is for young scientists to recognise their skills and be able to "sell" themselves to potential employers (and grant awarding bodies). I now run CV support sessions for young scientists on behalf of the FEBS Education Committee, of which I was a founder member.
