The prestigious Eppendorf Award for Young European Investigators turns 25 years in 2020. This will be celebrated with an event welcoming back high-calibre Award Alumni to talk about their science and careers: The Young European Investigators Conference held at the EMBL Advanced Training Centre in Heidelberg, on 25 June 2020. This free one-day conference is open to all scientists in biomedical research. The scientific program is organised by former winners Simon Boulton (The Francis Crick Institute, United Kingdom) and Óscar Fernández-Capetillo (CNIO, Spain & Karolinska Institute, Sweden). The event includes networking coffee breaks and lunch and a gala buffet in the evening. It will be rounded off with a talk from the newly minted 2020 Award winner.

Jury Chairman Reinhard Jahn: "I am really excited about the meeting which shows that the science done by previous winners of the EYIA is indeed outstanding!"
