FENS is the voice of European neuroscience. With 42 neuroscience member societies across 32 European countries, FENS as an organisation represents close to 23.000 European neuroscientists with a clear mission to advance European neuroscience education and research.
FENS meetings and events offer a wide range of learning- networking- and professional development opportunities. Learn about current topics in your field of interest, network with top figures in neuroscience, meet with your European peers whether from basic, translational or clinical neuroscience research, and share best practices with colleagues from around the world.
FENS actively supports graduate education and postgraduate training in neuroscience in Europe through a variety of initiatives. A new training framework launched in 2014 proposes appealing activities for students, post-docs and early career neuroscientists. Looking ahead and supporting the next generation is a key priority for FENS.
FENS, also in collaboration with its global partners (DANA, EBC, IBRO and SfN), aims to increase public awareness about the benefits of brain research. In addtion, FENS is committed to providing solid advice to policy makers and stakeholders on the importance of continuous support for brain research in order to solve the burden of brain-related diseases in Europe.
Excellent science is communicated through EJN, the official scientific journal of FENS and relevant and timely information is disseminated through the FENS Trimestrial Newsletter and by targeted emails to FENS members.
Federating numerous pan-European mono-disciplinary societies and all national neuroscience societies from across more than 30 European countries, FENS represents European neuroscience from basic to clinical research.
FENS, its member societies and partners organise numerous Neuroscience events througout the year. With the FENS calendar you can search specific events or use filters to identify events, schools and scientific meetings in your area.
