Brain Drain in Eastern Europe
Brain Drain in Eastern Europe 2017-09-22 - 18:30-20:00
Venue: Conference Room F08
Researchers’ mobility is a fundamental pillar of EU research strategy and is therefore strongly facilitated by the European Commission. However, “brain drain” and “brain gain”, the outgoing and incoming flow of highly skilled and trained individuals may influence member states differently. To initiate discussion about how researcher mobility affects Eastern European countries, the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence is organizing a forum discussion on “Brain Drain in Eastern Europe”.

A new optional course was introduced in the medical curriculum on the diverse aspects of anatomy. The topics include interesting anatomy-related topics with many different fields of anatomy/neuroanatomy. Although this knowledge is not necessarily required for the medical curriculum, it might help the student to learn anatomy with more interest and enthusiasm. The course also gives an insight into different kinds of Anatomy curriculum, like what kind of Anatomy a massage therapist or a veterinary needs in comparison to medical students and also shows some other Anatomy teaching systems from different universities worldwide. We have made an exhibition of the works students sent, further popularizing the subject of anatomy.
