Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS)

  • Description
  • FENS, the Fed­er­a­tion of Euro­pean Neu­ro­science Soci­eties, rep­re­sents a large num­ber of national Euro­pean neu­ro­science soci­eties and sev­eral monodis­ci­pli­nary soci­eties. FENS was founded in 1998 at the Forum of Euro­pean Neu­ro­science in Berlin and is the suc­ces­sor organ­i­sa­tion of ENA, the Euro­pean Neu­ro­science Association.

    FENS was founded with the goals of advanc­ing research and edu­ca­tion in neu­ro­science and rep­re­sent­ing neu­ro­science research in the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion, IBRO, and other grant­ing bod­ies. FENS is the Euro­pean part­ner of the Amer­i­can Soci­ety for Neuroscience.

    FENS is gov­erned by the FENS Gov­ern­ing Coun­cil. The FENS Gov­ern­ing Coun­cil is formed by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of all mem­ber soci­eties. The Coun­cil con­venes at least once a year and chooses com­mit­tee mem­bers, offi­cers, the venue of the next meet­ing etc. The day to day FENS admin­is­tra­tion is del­e­gated to the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee, as elected by the Coun­cil. Mem­bers of the Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee are elected for two years, and can be re-​elected only once. The Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee is sup­ported by three offices based in Berlin, Brus­sels and Athens.

    For a com­plete overview and more infor­ma­tion on the com­mit­tees and admin­stra­tion see our struc­ture page.
