With apologies for the inevitable duplication caused by posting to multiple
lists, the abstract submission and registration deadlines for our exciting
new conference, 'Lifelong Learning in the Biomedical Sciences' , *will
close on 6 June 2016*. Please register now to avoid disappointment. We'd
also be immensely grateful if you could help to spread the word around your

We all know that competent scientists, who are committed to staying at the
leading edge of developments in their field and constantly improving their
professional skills, are the underlying foundation of successful research
and development; yet research infrastructures and other research
organisations invest comparatively little time in developing their staff.
On behalf of the organising committee I am writing to cordially invite you
to attend the EMBL Conference on *Lifelong Learning in the Biomedical
Sciences*. This conference is a new international forum to bring together
the key influencers, policymakers, trainers and stakeholders from academia,
industry and the professional bodies who will shape and implement how
career-long continuing professional development is managed in the future.
It will encompass career-long continuing professional development for both
the academic and industry sectors. The conference will take place in
Heidelberg, Germany on 5-7 July 2016 (
Participating in this conference will provide you with:
- insight in the latest developments in education and training for
- an introduction to competency profiles as effective means to support
recruitment and retention of key staff
- means to empower your staff to manage their own continuing
professional development (CPD)
- opportunities to network with others with a passion for education and
training in the biomedical sciences
- a choice of interactive workshops to assist delegates to implement
continuing professional development practices in their organisations or
contribute to further discussions of conference topics
We invite you to submit your abstract and/or workshop proposal by *6 June
2016*. General registration is also open until *6 June 2016*. We are
looking forward to your registration and to seeing you in Heidelberg!
