EUROPEAN FEDERATION OF IMMUNOLOGICAL SOCIETIES - EFIS
The Irish Society for Immunology is a proud member of the European Federation of Immunological Societies (EFIS). EFIS is a non-profit umbrella organization that represents 35 European immunology societies, including, as well, associations from Eurasia and the Middle-East uniting nearly 14,000 individual researchers and clinicians working in the fields of immunology and allergology.
EFIS supports the research and education of immunology across Europe and has played a key role strengthening the scientific interaction amongst European immunologists. EFIS has a strong focus on supporting young scientists, through fellowships, travel grants and their partnering journals.
EUROPEAN CONGRESS OF IMMUNOLOGY - ECI
The European Congress of Immunology is the joint meeting of all EFIS member societies that takes place every 3 years. ECI is one of the most highly-regarded international conferences in the field of basic and clinical immunology. Every year ECI attracts over 3,000 delegates to this fantastic conference offering exciting scientific and social programs. Following Paris in 2006, Berlin in 2009, Glasgow in 2012 and Vienna in 2015, Amsterdam hosted the 5th ECI in 2018. The 6th ECI was to take place in Belgrade, Republic of Serbia, September 1-4, 2021, jointly organized by the Turkish and Serbian Societies for Immunology.

EFIS TASK FORCES
EFIS Task Forces are a major initiative emerging from the first EFIS Strategic Retreat. EFIS Task Forces are focused on three pertinent issues faced by European immunologists: education, vaccination and diversity. These task forces address specific needs perceived by Societies that can be better dealt with at a European level. The ISI is proud to support EFIS efforts with Dr Fred Sheedy as the Irish representative in the Diversity task force.
THE EFIS YOUNG IMMUNOLOGISTS TASK FORCE (yEFIS)
The EFIS Young Immunologist Task Force (yEFIS) aims to gather all early career scientists in Europe working in Immunology. The aim of yEFIS Task Force is to bring all these young immunologist groups together and build a European network to defend our interests on both a national and European level. The ISI is proud to support EFIS efforts with Dr Daniel Johnston as the Irish representative for Young EFIS.
