Increasing project impact

We have been working together with our Member Societies to support and increase the impact of a variety of activities, such as International Microorganism Day with the Portuguese Society of Microbiology, and the #EUROmicroMOOCs with the Spanish Society for Microbiology. The #EUROmicroMOOC initiative has now published details of its results for all to see.

As these successful examples have demonstrated, we are in an ideal position to contribute to knowledge exchange between communities. Promoting successful local initiatives, communicating and sharing those projects, and expanding them to a wider, international audience enables the community to have a unified approach and stronger impact. Therefore, we are inviting proposals from organizations who have projects where FEMS could provide:

  • support with promotion, communication, and digital media
  • connection with experts, researchers, freelancers, and administrators
  • support and advice with recruitment of volunteers and on volunteer management
  • internationalization of your project through our network

These proposals will be reviewed by our Board to see which could be incorporated into the delivery programme.

N.B.: you can submit a project proposal if you represent:

  • a FEMS Member Society
  • another society or organization involved in microbiology
Featured Issue

Applications of Mathematical Models

This Thematic Issue of Pathogens and Disease explores the applications of mathematical models. This issue has a particular focus on host-pathogen dynamics and population health applications, as well as the future of biomathematical modelling in terms of big data analytics. It features outstanding articles that outline next-generation approaches to this field by using advance software approaches with mathematical frameworks to tackle problems in epidemiology and infection treatment.
