Welcome to the new website!

EMBL Aid is a platform for EMBL staff from all EMBL sites to find how you can help raise money for different fundraising events. This includes local groups organising a local project and individuals who are taking part in their own local charity event or venture in order to raise money.

The EMBL Aid group started in Heidelberg in 2014, when there was a large influx of refugees coming to the Heidelberg area. Support has included collections of clothes, bake sales, welcome events, Christmas parties and support for refugees looking to find jobs in the area.

We welcome input from staff with ideas on how to help raise money, especially for local charities in your area.

If you would like to start your own initiative at your site, just let us know! Contact: emblaid@embl.org
