Group of Eight partners with leading European research facility
The Group of Eight signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) on 29 March 2010.
The Go8 and EMBL have undertaken to collaborate on the joint award of PhD qualifications in the subject of molecular biology.
EMBL is Europe’s life sciences research flagship. Based on analysis of citation data it ranks as the highest performing research institution outside the United States.
Australia became EMBL’s first “Associate Member” in 2007 through financial contributions from the Australian Government, CSIRO and four of the Go8’s member universities (Monash, UQ, UWA and Sydney).
