What are the aims of FEMS? Investing in Science A community of Editors and reviewers from across the globe support all of our publications. Their efforts underpin our ability to deliver our other charitable activities: every year we award hundreds of thousands of euros to help meetings organizers and early career researchers bring experts and earlier career scientists together. Building Communities To create a positive impact, science, industry and society need to work together. From specialist groups in emerging topics to advocacy groups promoting public policy, communities are at the basis of developments in microbiology. We are dedicated to help develop communities and to tear down whatever boundaries limit them. FEMS – an introduction
