EMBnet is glad to announce that the EMBnet Annual General Meeting 2023 will be held in Bari (IT), on June 23rd. In collaboration with the Bioinformatics Italian Society (BITs) EMBnet supports the participation of young researchers (PhD students and PostDoc) with three travel grants to present their work at the 19th Annual Meeting of the Bioinformatics Italian Society (June 21-23).

PhD students or PostDocs working outside of Italy and submitting an abstract to the conference as the first, last or presenter author can apply for the international travel grants offered by EMBnet. As a first round of assignments, applications by BITS or EMBnet members will be considered. In the case of unassigned grants, a second round will consider all other applications.
