EMBL institutional partnerships are close cooperative affiliations between EMBL and external institutions of comparable standard, vision and international orientation. Working relationships at the institutional level are based on shared institutional goals and scientific synergy or complementarity. The aim is to leverage the EMBL model together with the strengths of the partners, to create an interlinked system of excellent institutions that enhance molecular life science in Europe and the world.

General, 29 September 2020 The Nordic EMBL Partnership: supporting national research The partnership between EMBL and four Nordic research institutions aims to stimulate scientific exchange and inspire scientific collaborations. This year’s conference of the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine included many talks by EMBL researchers and a presentation by EMBL’s Director General.
Heidelberg, 4 May 2020 Nordic EMBL Partnership awarded 210,000 € funding The Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine has been awarded 210,000 euros by NordForsk as part of the Nordic Research Infrastructure Hubs initiative. The funds will be used to train the next generation of specialists and research leaders in molecular medicine in the Nordic countries. The grant will also foster the connection between the Nordic countries and EMBL.
General, 11 April 2019 Partners in the north In 2007, the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine was founded as a collaboration between EMBL and FIMM (Institute of Molecular Medicine Finland) at the University of Helsinki, MIMS (Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden) at Umeå University, and NCMM (Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway) at the University of Oslo. The collaboration with EMBL aimed to bring their biomedical research to a more international level by raising the profile of their institutes, creating state-of-the-art infrastructures and recruiting excellent scientists from around the world.
General, 3 April 2019 How EMBL partnerships promote collaboration The EMBL Partnership Programme is an initiative aimed at promoting scientific collaboration across the EMBL member states by setting up close cooperative alliances between EMBL and research institutions in the member states. The Partnership Programme has grown gradually over the years and currently encompasses 11 partnerships. These are based on shared institutional goals and common or complementary scientific interests. The aim is to combine the advantages of the EMBL model with the individual strengths of the partners, creating an interlinked system of institutions working together in the pursuit of scientific excellence.
