Slots in national courses in 2016
In partnership with IBRO-PERC, FENS has launched this initiative to support MSc and Ph.D. neuroscience students - European and non-European - to broaden their knowledge and acquire international experience by participating in short courses organised by the NENS schools.
The FENS and IBRO-PERC stipends of 750 EUR each are intended to cover travel and accommodation costs for master and Ph.D. students (European and non-European) interested in attending short courses outside the country where they are studying or residing.
