The European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS) is a non-profit umbrella organization that represents more than 14,000 individual immunologists from 33 immunological societies from all across Europe, and even beyond the borders to Israel.
The main goals of EFIS are the support of immunological research and education as well as strengthening scientific interaction amongst the members with:
- supporting young scientists, e.g. through fellowships or travel grants.
- supporting congresses and conferences in Europe
- promoting Immunology to the general public through the Day of Immunology, and other activities: check out the interactive exhibition www.inside-immunity.org or the interactive book www.interactive-immunity.org
