The students and mentors from the last FEMS Summer School for Postdocs (2019) at MedILS, in Split (Croatia)

The Summer School presents a unique opportunity for early career scientists to receive instruction and supervision from prominent academics, collaborate and network with fellow researchers from an international range of countries, and to discuss their own work as well as wider aspects of being a scientist.

It will run for 10 days from 3 September to 13 September 2021 (pandemic permitting). Accommodation and all facilities will be located in the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (MedILS) in Split, Croatia, with some accommodation in nearby facilities to ensure all participants have individual rooms.


COVID-19 Disclaimer: 

The safety and welfare of our attendees and staff is our top priority. Consequently, FEMS will monitor the situation for this year’s Summer School for Postdocs and decide whether the ongoing SARS-CoV2/COVID-19 pandemic will force us to conduct the Summer School in an online format, rather than in person. For now, we are planning an in-person event with various precautions, with contingency plans for an online version of this event. 

International and Croatian recommendations and requests for travel and events will be applied.
