IMPORTANT: Due to a hosting change the ÖGMBT Website will only have reduced functionality (no new member registrations or access to the intranet) and may be partially offline during the week from 10.8. – 14.8.2020. E-mail services may also be affected. Please make sure that you access any information such as membership confirmations before or after this time period.

The annual meeting registration system is unaffected by this change and will continue to be available.

KICK OFF EVENT

The Annual Meeting would have taken place in Graz from September 21-23, 2020. In order to express our gratitude to our organisers and giving credit to Graz as outstanding Life Science hub in Austria, we will be holding our Kick-off event online on those very days.

What you can expect to happen live in our virtual meeting room:

From a wide array of scientific topics covered at the institutions in Graz, the program will pick out two plenary lectures by renowned speakers: Cryo-EM and Healthy Ageing.

Furthermore, we will bring before the curtain Austrian Groups who are in the forefront of Corona Research. They will give us a synopsis of the status, latest findings and challenges related to the pandemic.

We will be celebrating the bestowal of the Life Science Awards Austria 2020 as a festive occasion, at which we proudly present the Rising Stars of the Life Science community in Austria.

The Life Science Career Fair will give companies the possibility to meet and recruit talents from all areas of Life Science.

Each day of the kick off will feature

  • a morning session from 10:00 – 12:00, after which participants who still want to discuss on can do so in ad-hoc breakout rooms over lunch and
  • an afternoon session from 15:00 – 17:00 , after which one could meet in breakout rooms for virtual “happy hour” with drinks, crackers etc.
