MOVING DAY. Ten scientists working at research powerhouses around the world will be setting up their labs across Europe under a new program run by the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The EMBO installation grants, $66,000 annually for 3 to 5 years and funded by member nations, are intended to strengthen science across the continent. The first cohort will open labs in Poland, Portugal, Turkey, Croatia, the Czech Republic, and Estonia.

Creating new labs in this way will help boost science in Europe, but more must be done, says Marcin Nowotny, a postdoc at the U.S. National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, who is moving to the International Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology in Warsaw, Poland. Young researchers also need support from established scientists, Nowotny adds.
