Association for General and Applied Microbiology (DE-VAAM)
The Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) unites about 3500 microbiologically oriented scientists. The overall objective of the VAAM is to use scientific findings in microbiology for the benefit of society and nature. To achieve this goal the VAAM promotes the exchange of information and collaboration among its member. Moreover it has always been a mission of the VAAM to foster young academics. The strength and success of the VAAM is largely built on a long series of very successful conferences, where students and professionals from academia and industry come together for an intense scientific and social exchange.
