EAM

During the course of the past 40 years, we have launched and developed five highly-respected journals, which largely fund our charitable activities. This includes our grants programme, biennial congress, and the European Academy of Microbiology (EAM).

The EAM is a leadership group of around 150 eminent microbiology experts who came together in 2009 to amplify the impact of microbiology and microbiologists in Europe.
