DANEMO is the Danish research support center and communication platform with the mission to increase attention to the numerous opportunities at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) and the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) for career paths, funding, and scientific services such as core facilities, databases, instruments, and large-scale facilities. EMBO and EMBL opportunities are relevant to everyone in the Danish research communities within life sciences in both academia and industry, from undergraduates to senior scientists!
The aim is to raise the awareness and use of the many exciting research positions and fellowships at cutting-edge facilities to strengthen careers in science and research support, and of the many resources in science offered by EMBL and EMBO. Hopefully DANEMO’s mission will result in more Danish applicants to the PhD, postdoc and group leader programmes at EMBL, as well as the many career developing opportunities for research facility and support staff, use of scientific services at EMBL, and for fellowship, course opportunities and networks at EMBO.
DANEMO is coordinated by the steering group consisting of representatives at the Danish universities.
To celebrate one year of DANEMO an interview with DANEMO-coordinator Karen Bech-Pedersen and administrative program coordinator Maria Thykær Jensen.

The DANEMO Symposium "Molecular Ecosystems" took place November 3-4th, and was a great sucess. With speakers and participants from all across Euorope. The Symposium aimed to create awareness of the new EMBL Programme "Molecules to Ecosystems", as well as create more knowledge around EMBL and EMBO for students and researcher across Denmark.
During the Symposium we were lucky to have Dorota Badowska present, she has afterwards put together an article about the symposium, which you can read here.
In November we attended the first Career Fair hosted by the Synapse Aarhus hub. The event was very succesfull with a lot of firms and academia present to help guide 200+ students to their next career choice.
In late May we participated in the annual department meeting of MBG. The day feautred talks, poster sessions, booths and lots of interaction. We got a chance to be with all of our colleagues at MBG, as well as meet new faces and tell them all about the great opportunities pressent at EMBL and EMBO.
May 5-7th DANEMO attended matchpoints. The overall theme was "Our Fascinating Brain", which was further divided into the subcategories: "The Molecular Brain", "The Plastic Brain", "The Emotional Brain" and "The Diseased Brain". The event featured great speakers ranging from molecular biologist topsychology professors. The event was cross disciplinary which was a great fit with EMBL's new programme "Molecules to Ecosystems". We handed out flyers focusing especially on the newest programme as well as EMBL Rome, the epigenetics and neurobiology centre.
We handed out a lot of DANEMO flyers and talked about the many opportunites within EMBL, EMBO and DANEMO.
We are already looking forward to next years conference.
All EMBL staff, alumni, their colleagues, and networks were invited to "EMBL in Denmark 2021: Enzymes of the future" at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) in Copenhagen, which was held on 3-4 December 2021.
Further, everyone interested in the possibilities for funding and career development at EMBL and EMBO, as well as learning more about the scientific ressources available to external users, were also cordially invited to join the event.
This free two-day event included a diverse group of speakers from Denmark, recent Novozyme Prize winner Peer Bork and a keynote lecture from Bernard Henrissat.
The event focused on enzymes, structural enzymology and scientific services. It also included information from DANEMO, highlighting the many opportunities at EMBL and EMBO for career paths, funding, and scientific services.
The meeting also included poster session and opportunities to make new connections and broaden ones network over coffee breaks and lunch.
DANEMO offered travel funding awards for students and fellows, to further encourage and facilitate a broad range of participants from the Danish research institutions across Denmark.
