When an institute reaches a milestone anniversary, it is a time to celebrate the past and look forward to future successes. In June, IMBA celebrates 20 years of discoveries to mark its start of research, and we want you to take an active part in it. Under the umbrella "Exploring the Unknown: Our Passion, Our Future," we are delighted to host a series of activities that include a festive ceremony with key stakeholders ("Festakt"), a scientific symposium, networking with IMBA alumni, a salon featuring artists who have created stunning works at IMBA, and a reception.
