The Next Generation Immunologists (NGI) is an ÖGAI platform for and by young researchers in the fields of immunology and allergology in Austria. Since the NGI was founded in 2019, we have organized workshops, lectures, meetups and lecture series to inform young scientists about processes and current topics in the scientific world. Next Generation Immunologists (NGIs) are ÖGAI members under 35 years of age.

Our primary mission is to support early career researchers by providing a network that connects our members with experts in the field as well as members of other young immunologists associations. To achieve this on an international level, we are part of international junior networks to connect with our scientific peer group within Europe.
