2023 marks 100-years of the SEB. Find information on all the exciting events and initiatives we have coming up next year!

 Events and Initiatives


We are launching a new peer mentoring scheme for members of the SEB to share experiences and help one another grow their careers. This will be a pilot scheme in 2023 with 300 places available. If successful, we are hoping to roll it out further in future years.

Register for the Mentoring Scheme



Join our “party month” in April 2023 and plan a special celebration event at your own institute. The SEB Birthday Fund can provide up to £500 per event to assist with the independent organization of a scientific meeting, networking event, single lecture, or small events such as postgraduate research days to help celebrate the SEB centenary year.
