How can I participate in AMICI?

Any official member of one of the participating Austrian scientific and medical societies is also allowed to participate in AMICI.

Participation is defined by active contribution to any of the aims and activities of AMICI.

For example...

  • If you are planning to organize a meeting or a public outreach activity on the microbiome we strongly encourage you to perform this under the patronage of AMICI.
  • You have invited a microbiome expert for a talk? Enable attendance of a wider audience and advertise the talk as AMICI Lecture!
  • If you are actively working in microbiome research and feel that AMICI can profit from your expertise, you could also become a member of our Board of Experts.

Please contact us and briefly describe your activity or expertise that is of benefit to Austrian microbiome research.
