How to survive the Holiday Season (without kicking your science habits)

‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’ is on the radio, but what if you really don’t want to miss out on all the good things microbiology has to offer? In comes our survival kit for the holidays, a tool that microbiology enthusiasts cannot miss!

REFLECT ON THE YEAR

The end of the year is the perfect time to reflect on your research. What research do you want to share? How would you summarize your research if you’d have to fit it in 250 words? What category of research would you want yours to be listed in? When you submit your abstract for FEMS2019 you will reflect on all of these questions and more, so why not make it a habit while you’re at it?

AFTER-HOLIDAYS SALES

We all know that you can get the best bargains after the holidays. So use the post-holiday sales to get cheap flights to Glasgow or Edinburgh. Registering now for the congress also pays off: this will save you up to GBP 108 compared to registering later. Want to stay a bit longer? Then have a look at what Glasgow has to offer on top of the FEMS Congress.

NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS

Speaking of sales, you should of course not skip the extra discounts for FEMS2019 delegates. Have a look and discover the offers brought to you by - local and national - tours, transport, food and retail suppliers. So when you’re making a toast at your team x-mas party, you’ll always have a conversation starter: planning your team’s  after-hours events for congress!
