Message From The President

08-03-2024 Antonio Ventosa
It is a great honour and privilege for me to serve as the new FEMS President for the next three years, starting in January 2024. Currently, FEMS is more than the “voice of the European microbiologists”; it is a global institution that offers many possibilities to microbiologists all over the world, such as meetings, grants, publications, training courses, prizes, etc.  I would like to emphasize that FEMS is a not-for-profit federation, and our revenues support Microbiology, and we invest in microbiologists, especially young researchers. The next few years will be of great relevance. We must accomplish many important tasks, such as the transition of the FEMS journals to Open Access publication models and the impact that has on our income.   I will do my best for the future of FEMS, and I am grateful for the support of the Microbiology community, and the coordinated work of the Board of Directors, the Council, the Executive Director, and the FEMS staff.
