EMBL institutional partnerships are close cooperative affiliations between EMBL and external institutions of comparable standard, vision and international orientation. Working relationships at the institutional level are based on shared institutional goals and scientific synergy or complementarity. The aim is to leverage the EMBL model together with the strengths of the partners, to create an interlinked system of excellent institutions that enhance molecular life science in Europe and the world.

Involving institutions on or near EMBL campuses, benefiting from shared infrastructure and equipment.
Implementing EMBL’s research strategy and operational model on the national level in member states.
General, 11 April 2019 Partners in the north In 2007, the Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine was founded as a collaboration between EMBL and FIMM (Institute of Molecular Medicine Finland) at the University of Helsinki, MIMS (Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden) at Umeå University, and NCMM (Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway) at the University of Oslo. The collaboration with EMBL aimed to bring their biomedical research to a more international level by raising the profile of their institutes, creating state-of-the-art infrastructures and recruiting excellent scientists from around the world.
General, 3 April 2019 How EMBL partnerships promote collaboration The EMBL Partnership Programme is an initiative aimed at promoting scientific collaboration across the EMBL member states by setting up close cooperative alliances between EMBL and research institutions in the member states. The Partnership Programme has grown gradually over the years and currently encompasses 11 partnerships. These are based on shared institutional goals and common or complementary scientific interests. The aim is to combine the advantages of the EMBL model with the individual strengths of the partners, creating an interlinked system of institutions working together in the pursuit of scientific excellence.
General, 26 March 2019 EMBL partners with BRAINCITY EMBL has signed a partnership agreement with BRAINCITY, a new Centre of Excellence for Neural Plasticity and Brain Disorders, in Poland. EMBL partnerships are close cooperative affiliations with national institutes in EMBL member states. This is EMBL’s twelfth partnership and furthers EMBL’s aim to create a network of international centres of scientific excellence and advanced training.
General, 5 December 2018 New EMBL Partnership in Hungary EMBL has recently formed an inter-institutional collaboration with the Hungarian Centre of Excellence for Molecular Medicine (HCEMM), setting the stage for the ongoing transfer of institutional, research and collaborative expertise between the two organisations. Researchers at HCEMM will also have access to the EMBL Partnership network across Europe and further afield. HCEMM is a newly established non-profit organisation, researching the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular and inflammatory diseases. It will bridge the gap between fundamental and translational research by undertaking projects with relatively rapid clinical applications.
Hinxton, 8 November 2018 Genomes of all known UK species to be sequenced The genetic code of 66,000 UK species will be sequenced by the Wellcome Sanger Institute in a major collaboration with EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) and other partner organisations as part of a global effort to sequence all 1.5 million known species of animal, plant, protozoa and fungi on Earth. The UK project, known as the Darwin Tree of Life Project, launched 1 November alongside the global effort, the Earth BioGenome Project. The Earth BioGenome Project will ultimately create a new foundation for biology to drive solutions for preserving biodiversity and sustaining human societies.
