The conference is the first of a new series of high-level meetings on the neurosciences in Europe. Sponsored for the first time by ESF and The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS, the major neuroscience association in Europe), these bi-annual conferences will bring together outstanding researchers in key broadly defined areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
Grants are available for students and early stage researchers to cover the conference fee and possibly part of the travel costs. Grants are distributed based on financial need and scientific merit. Grantees must attend the entire conference in order to benefit from the grant. Grant requests should be made by ticking appropriate field(s) in the paragraph "Grant application" of the application form.
