More information on the event page

  • Date: 18 - 19 May 2023
  • Time: 12:30
  • Venue: University of Turin, Room: AULA DARWIN in the Molecular Biotechnology Center (MBC) via Nizza 52, Turin.

EMBL invites members of the life sciences community in Italy, including its own alumni and staff, to EMBL in Italy 2023: Chance and necessity-the indispensable role of curiosity-driven life sciences, held on Thursday to Friday 18-19 May 2023. 

This two-day event includes speakers representing a diverse group of EMBL faculty and basic life science researchers and foundations from around Italy. Its focus will be the indispensable role of curiosity-driven fundamental research and its funding. It is an excellent opportunity to reflect on basic research today and to connect with an impressive community of life scientists and funders. The event also aims to strengthen ties and highlight resources as well as collaboration opportunities between EMBL, the University of Turin and Piemonte Orientale as well as networks in Italy.

The programme includes a tour of the biotechnology centre, a poster session, refreshment breaks and networking. 

This free event is open to all and includes coffee breaks and finger food. If you would like to attend in-person, please register as early as possible to secure a spot. We encourage you to spread awareness and extend the invitation to your own network.

Who Should Attend:

EMBL in… events are open to all life scientists. The aim is to share what’s happening at EMBL with communities in our EMBL member and associate member states, as well as learn about new and innovative life sciences research and resources available in EMBL host countries. With these events, we seek to open up valuable dialogue, ensuring that as many people as possible have access to the opportunities provided by both EMBL and its alumni and partners.


  • Make valuable connections in Italy
  • Learn about new and exciting research
  • Get to know EMBL and the University of Turin and Piemonte Orientale: their community, career opportunities, resources and impact
