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.
Biochemistry Bachelor Student, University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM)
I am a science enthusiast who loves learning and researching about topics such as neuroscience and genetics.
I am vice-president of the youth association Bioquímica en Movimiento-Toledo branch (BeM-Toledo), which collaborates with the Spanish Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (SEBBM) and the FEBS Junior Sections.
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 Sections.
