The annual FEBS Congress is one of the most visible activities of FEBS. As one of the largest bio-congresses in Europe, attracting up to ~2000 attendees, the Congress provides a platform for international scientific exchange and showcases the newest developments in biochemistry, molecular biology and related areas. The Congress comprises inspiring plenary lectures presented by outstanding scientists, a range of subject-specific symposia to provide deeper dives into different areas of bioscience research, extensive poster communications, and interesting workshops and other activities on related topics. It is also a celebration of achievements, with several FEBS medals and prizes awarded. FEBS Congresses are a collaboration between FEBS and one or more of its Constituent Societies, moving to a different location within the FEBS area each year.
