Are you a student or postdoc with questions about PI life? Are you a group leader curious about others' experiences? Join us at the FENS-Kavli Scholars' social and get a chance to discuss with mid-career neuroscientists in an informal, relaxed atmosphere. Importantly, free drinks and snacks will be served.

19:00 - 22:30

An evening at the Berlin Museum of Medical History: the German Contribution to the History of Neuroscience

Venue: Berlin Museum of Medical History at the Charité, Charitéplatz 1, 10117 Berlin
Host: FENS History Committee
Contact Person: Mathilde Maughan

The seminar will focus on Germany's important contribution to neuroscience in the 19th and 20th centuries. Particular emphasis will be placed on the emergence of neurophysiology and biophysics, and on how exchanges between scientists from Germany and the rest of Europe contributed to progress in these fields. These at times unlikely exchanges had an impact not only on scientific research but also on other disciplines, such as the influence of Herman von Helmholtz on the eminent French writer, Marcel Proust.

The seminar will be followed by a standing buffet and tour of the museum.

Registration required. Please register here.

An Evening of Science Café

Host: FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence
Contact person: Mihaela Vincze

Continuing the success of the Pub Talk events @ the FENS Forum Copenhagen in 2016, the FENS-Kavli Scholars have organised a Science Café series for the general public in informal settings.

Featured talks by FENS-Kavli Scholars will inspire discussions centered around emerging topics in neuroscience with direct relevance for society.

FENS Forum attendees are highly welcome to participate in these engaging discussions.

Come join in communicating neuroscience to the general public!

Science Café locations in Berlin and the programme (speakers, title of talks) will be available for download shortly.

No registration required.

Monday, 9 July, 2018

19:00 - 21:00

Network for Euro-Mediterranean Collaborations

Host(s): Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS)
Contact person(s): Giuseppe Di Giovanni

Get together neuroscientists from the Euro-Mediterranean area beyond to inform them on the role of the Mediterranean Neuroscience Society (MNS) in bridging the gap between the North and the South of the Mediterranean in the field of Neuroscience. Participants will be informed about the ongoing activities of the Society, its initiatives and events planned for 2018 and 2019.

19:00 - 22:30

Synaptic Interaction Night

Host(s): Brose lab, Max-Planck Institute of Experimental Medicine and Rosenmund lab, Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin
Contact person(s): Marcial Camacho Perez

Many successful projects in the field of synaptic transmission are conducted with the collaboration of several research groups. The aim of this networking event is to bring together senior and junior scientists studying presynaptic release mechanisms to increase scientific crosstalk about published and unpublished research, as well as to boost communication and new collaborations between laboratories. This event will encourage lively discussions on the current state of presynaptic mechanisms and functions as they relate to the broader field of synaptic transmission. This networking event welcomes participation from neuroscientists within and outside the EU.

Tuesday, 10 July 2018

18:45 - 20:20

Next Generation Networks in Neuroscience: Networking, Training and Funding Opportunities in Neurosciences for the next generation of researchers

Contact person(s): 
FENS-CHET: Mihaela Vincze

Are you interested in developing your career perspectives and collaborations options? Join our networking event - meet and mingle with music, drinks and food, while getting updates on support possibilities of ERA-NET NEURON, training, educational opportunities (or possibilities) and available financial aid offered by FENS-CHET.

The recipients of the Best Poster Awards for MSc and PhD students enrolled with Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS) will be also announced during this social event.

Early-career scientists, students, alumni of FENS training activities and NENS representatives are warmly welcome!


FENS-Kavli Scholars Reception
