Waiting list

This course is popular so please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Once the course is full, a waiting list will be available but there is no guarantee a place will become free. It is our intention to offer other similar courses for Female Group Leaders in 2016.


This course is only open to female scientists who have already attended an EMBO Laboratory Management Course or any other leadership workshop with hfp consulting or leadership sculptor in the past. Participation is restricted as it is strongly believed that the basics taught on those courses (such as Active Listening technique, I-language, Enneagram Personality model etc) are a necessary prerequisite. If you do not have this, it is recommended you consider one of the EMBO Laboratory Management courses. It is our intention to offer other similar courses for Female Group Leaders in the future.

Please note that only the course fee (including accommodation) is covered. No funding for travel is available.

The cancellation policy also applies, failure to inform us punctually will mean that you may lose your entitlement to the fee waiver and should you re-apply in the future, the full registration fees may apply.
