Welcome to the website of the Federation of European Microbiological Societies (FEMS).
FEMS was founded in 1974. Currently, FEMS has 48 Member Societies from 36 European countries which links more than 30 000 microbiologists.
To facilitate the exchange of microbiological knowledge, FEMS publishes five journals, organises a biennial congress of microbiologists and initiates campaigns such as the European Academy of Microbiology (EAM) and European Microbiology Forum (EMF).
FEMS also provides funding for young scientists and organisers of microbiology-related events.
Are you a young European scientist? Or do you intend to organize a congress about microbiology in Europe next year? Then this message is for you!
