Biography & Abstract:
The EBF’s Young Scientist Symposium aim to provide development opportunities for young scientists, sharing bioanalytical experiences, discussing challenges and successes, and building up a network across multiple organisations from academia and industry. In the 10th EBF Open Symposium, the EBF Young Scientist Symposium Organizing Committee (YSS OC) will reflect on the three previous successful symposiums, as well as introduce the new standalone YSS (Ghent, Belgium, 15-16 March 2018).
