In accordance with article 14 of its Statutes, the EFEM sponsors an EFEM Lecture given by a scientist who has made an outstanding contribution to the Morphological Sciences.

Applications are requested from Constituent Societies for the EFEM Lectureship, to be delivered in 2017. Accordingly, the EFEM Executive Board seeks from Constituent Societies:

  • nominations for potential speakers,
  • invitations to meetings at which the EFEM Lecture is to be given.
