Six months education and networking at the largest Life Science event(s) in Austria

The Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT) is pleased to announce that registration and abstract submission for our online 12th Annual Meeting “Biomolecules in/for the 21st Century” is open.

Do not miss the chance to register for six months education and networking at the largest Life Science event(s) in Austria. The layout in our virtual meeting room will enable interactivity in order to keep up the cherished spirit of learning from each other, exchanging ideas and giving each participant ample opportunities to discuss her /his research with colleagues, friends and senior scientists. All students and scientists from academia as well as from industry are welcome to take advantage of this unique opportunity.


If you register by July 31, 2020 and your residence is in Austria, you will receive the conference guide and a little surprise by surface mail.

You can contribute to the meeting by submitting your abstract for a short talk or “Science Flash” at one of the Life Science Tuesdays. Every young scientist who has submitted an abstract has the chance to win one of the Awards for Best Talk or Best Science Flash.

Below you can find a program outline & topics.

From September 21-23 our virtual meeting room will stage the Kick off event (2 sessions/day à 2h). You will hear lectures from renowned Plenary Speakers, our Austrian Life Science Awards Austria 2020 winners and get insights into the latest Corona research conducted in Austria. We will feature the Life Science Career Fair and will hear and discuss about cryo-EM and healthy ageing in the 21st Century, as Graz special contribution. Our much appreciated exhibition will be an interactive VirtualExpo (with live chat and live video calls), which will accompany us starting from the kick-off event on throughout the period of all Life Science Tuesdays.

Following the Kick off event, our virtual meeting room will open its’ doors for bi-weekly Life Science Tuesdays, where we will spend an afternoon together focussing and interacting on a specific topic – centrepieces will be invited talks, short talks, “Science Flashes” in lieu of posters, workshops/webinars and the VirtualExpo. A separate Exhibitor Quiz will take place at every Life Science Tuesday- so you have 12 chances to win!

We are very much looking forward to welcome you at the 12th ÖGMBT Annual Meeting!

On February 13th and 14th more than 400 scientists from different countries and scientific backgrounds gathered together in Zurich for this year’s FEBS3+ Life Science Switzerland (LS2) Annual Meeting 2020 under the theme "Cells, Molecules and Organisms", including numerous scientists from Austria. It was the first time that this meeting was jointly organized with the German Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (GBM), as well as the Austrian Association of Molecular Life Sciences and Biotechnology (ÖGMBT) - and it was a huge success.

Students and Young Scientists

A membership in the ÖGMBT brings a whole range of advantages already during your studies. This is reflected, among other things, in the large number of activities that enable to exchange and network with other students, young professionals and scientists across institutes and even across countries. As a Bachelor student I experienced this once more by getting the opportunity to participate at the FEBS3+ LS2 meeting. Already last year, at the 11th Annual Meeting of the ÖGMBT in Salzburg, the Young Life Scientists Austria (YLSA) decided together with the Junior-GBM (jGBM) to attend the LS2 Annual Meeting to connect with the Swiss young scientists and learn from each other.
