FEBS Summer School
The FEBS Immunology Summer School started in 1978 and soon became the most popular Immunology Summer School in Europe.
Every other year the school introduced a new generation of young immunologists from all over the world to exciting new developments in immunology. The school also helped the students find a postdoc or junior research position in a prominent lab and more importantly it fostered interactions among young immunologists. Indeed many productive and stable scientific networks have been initiated at these courses. If you ask prominent younger colleagues about this course, they often tell you that this is where they met their most important collaborators.
From the start, the course was organized by Prof. Dr. Michael Papamichail, and most schools took place at Ionian Village, a small summer retreat on the western shore of the Peloponnesus. After Prof. Papamichail retired, Prof. Bojan Polic took over the local organization of this successful Summer School. The course has since been moved to a new location in Croatia, and it now takes place on the island of Hvar in beautiful Dalmatia.
This year's school will be the 19th in the series and we are confident that it will be as exciting and useful as the former ones.
