The Annual Meeting would have taken place in Graz from September 21-23, 2020. In order to express our gratitude to our organisers and giving credit to Graz as outstanding Life Science hub in Austria, we will be holding our Kick-off event online on those very days. In addition to our Zoom meeting some events from the kick off will be livestreamed publicly on our YouTube channel yt logo rgb light20px! Please refer to the events below to see which events are available on Youtube.

What you can expect to happen live in our virtual meeting room:

From a wide array of scientific topics covered at the institutions in Graz, the program will pick out two plenary lectures by renowned speakers: Cryo-EM and Healthy Ageing.

Furthermore, we will bring before the curtain Austrian Groups who are in the forefront of Corona Research. They will give us a synopsis of the status, latest findings and challenges related to the pandemic.

We will be celebrating the bestowal of the Life Science Awards Austria 2020 as a festive occasion, at which we proudly present the Rising Stars of the Life Science community in Austria.

The Life Science Career Fair will give companies the possibility to meet and recruit talents from all areas of Life Science.

Each day of the kick off will feature

  • a morning session from 10:00 – 12:00, after which participants who still want to discuss on can do so in ad-hoc breakout rooms over lunch and
  • an afternoon session from 15:00 – 17:00 , after which one could meet in breakout rooms for virtual “happy hour” with drinks, crackers etc.
