European Academy of Microbiology

Message from the EAM President

"The importance of microbiology and the relevance of the EAM as a leadership group have been especially highlighted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet, there are both challenges and opportunities ahead of us. The scientific publication landscape is changing dramatically, and with it, the way scientific findings are disseminated, perceived and evaluated. I recognize the ever-increasing need for digitalization and the growing importance of social media in communicating our views. As the EAM tackles these challenges, we remain committed to promoting microbiology as a field of study and recognizing excellence within its practice throughout Europe and beyond."
