Tune up your skills: FENS training opportunities and aid for students and young researchers
Tune up your skills: FENS training opportunities and aid for students and young researchers 2017-09-22 - 12:30-14:00
Venue: Conference Room 103
Being neuroscientists, you know very well how important it is for neurons to establish and maintain proper connections. For you as MSc, PhD students or early-stage career researchers in neuroscience, it is crucial to form your own networks, to broaden your horizons, to tune up your skills and knowledge!

FENS-CHET cordially invites you to join this special event providing you with valuable information on FENS initiatives to support your higher education, tranining in theoretical and experimental research skills, exchange visits, and establishing international contacts.

During the session, several young neuroscientists supported by FENS will present their experiences and research topics. The coordinator one of the supported national neuroscience courses will share his/her views on how FENS support was important for the dynamics and scientific quality of the course.

The event will close with informal socialising: enjoy delicious snacks just at lunch time, mingle with your colleagues, get acquainted with FENS-CHET members, and ask everything you always wanted to know about opportunities of our FENS support!
