Our Annual Report for 2018 is now available online for all to see. It provides details of our governance, membership, publications, events, grants, and activities and developments for the year.
2018 was another year in which FEMS continued to grow and develop to meet the evolving needs of our Members, the wider scientific community and the world at large. We made an impact beyond our small size thanks to the team in Delft and much larger group of volunteers from across the world.
Many of these initiatives originated within a Member society and the European scope of the Federation enables us to support and share these across borders. Promoting successful national activities and collaborating with our Members on projects that nurture talent are some of our key functions.
International Microorganism Day is a fantastic example of both, with the 2018 event the biggest yet, and I am confident it will continue to grow.” – Bauke Oudega (President of FEMS during 2018)
