The FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF) Jerusalem 2017

Welcome message

It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 17th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF), which will take place in conjunction with the 42nd FEBS Congress in Jerusalem.

The YSF will be held at the Ramat Rachel Resort, Jerusalem, from September 7th to 10th, 2017.  The resort is located in south Jerusalem overlooking a surrounding area with stunning beauty.  Young scientists dedicated to excellence in science will organize the YSF 2017.  It will provide a platform for PhD students and postdocs from the FEBS Constituent Societies to get together to present their work either as short oral presentations (selected from abstracts), or as posters, in a friendly international atmosphere.  The YSF will also include keynote lectures by leading researchers and a roundtable event on skills required to build a strong basis for a successful scientific career. Together with its exciting scientific program, the YSF will include a variety of social events and will be a valuable opportunity for networking.

About 100 outstanding young scientists will be selected to take part in the YSF. FEBS provides financial support to the selected participants via a YSF grant that covers Congress registration, accommodation for both the YSF and FEBS Congress and most travel expenses. Details on how to apply, including eligibility criteria, can be found on the YSF Applications page.

The 17th YSF Organizing Committee is very happy to invite young scientists from across the FEBS area to join us for this great opportunity to meet colleagues, create collaborations and make lasting friendships.
