The EMPSEB22 will be held in Gotland, Sweden in September

The delegate giving the best talk at the meeting will be awarded the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award 2016.

May 24, 2016

This year, the European Meeting of PhD Students in Evolutionary Biology will be held on the island of Gotland, Sweden. The meeting is being organised by PhD students from Uppsala universitet, one of the great places to study Evolution in Europe.

As in previous editions, the delegate giving the best talk at the meeting will be awarded the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award. The prize consists in a one-week holiday for six people at The Farm Cottage (Galicia, Spain). And so each year AllGenetics awards a young promise in Evolutionary biology as well as promoting Galicia as a unique “slow tourism” destination.

The previous winners of the AllGenetics-EMPSEB Award were:

  • Mareike Wurdack (Universität Freiburg) in 2012.
  • Pepijn Kamminga (Universiteit Leiden) in 2013.
  • Margo Maex (Vrije universiteit Brussel) in 2014.
  • John Bruce (University of Oxford) in 2015.

The EMPSEB provides a platform for PhD students studying Evolutionary Biology to present their work and to meet their colleagues from all over Europe. It takes place in a different European city each year and is organised by current PhD students in the country where it is held. The meeting, which started 22 years ago in Zurich, is now an annual tradition.
