The EFIS Young Immunologist Network (yEFIS Network) aims to gather all early career scientists in Europe working in Immunology. Within the different European Immunology Societies, self-organised Young Immunologist (YI) groups have arisen in the last years. However, there has been limited contact between them. The aim of this network is to bring all these YI groups together and build a European network to defend their interests on both a national and European level. EFIS provided the platform to start up this network and this is how in 2020 yEFIS Task Force and yEFIS Network were born.

Our mission

The main objectives of the yEFIS Network are to:
  • Provide a platform for young immunologists form all European countries to do networking
  • Promote early career immunologists at a European level
  • Promote national YI groups in all EFIS-affiliated societies
  • Expand youth participation in EFIS goals
  • Bring visibility to YI during international meetings and schools, establishing regular dedicated sessions
  • Share information, interests and ideas between European YI
  • Connect YI and experienced scientists to shape the next generation of Immunologists in Europe
