YSF Welcome

Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure and honour to invite you to participate in the 20th FEBS Young Scientists' Forum (YSF 2020) to be held from 1st to 4th July 2020 in Lovran, Opatija Riviera, Croatia. The event will take place at the Remisens Hotel Excelsior (4*) situated right on the Adriatic Sea and surrounded by a tree-filled park.

The YSF 2020, which is organized just ahead of and in conjunction with the 45th FEBS Congress in Ljubljana, Slovenia, will bring together about 100 PhD students and postdocs from across the FEBS area, with those selected to participate supported by FEBS YSF grants. Participants will present and discuss their research from biochemistry and related fields, benefit from career skills development, and also go on to experience the ensuing 45th FEBS Congress in Ljubljana from 4th to 9th July 2020.

The scientific programme and the social events at YSF 2020 will provide you with an excellent opportunity for a rewarding scientific and personal experience, including exchanging ideas with colleagues and establishing new acquaintances.

We hope you will join us at the YSF 2020 and enjoy a special experience in Lovran, one of the oldest coastal villages on the eastern shore of the Istrian peninsula.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Lovran!
