Message from the FENS President

After a long and challenging period for all in the neuroscience community and wider society, it gives me great pleasure to announce some encouraging news. FENS events, having successfully transitioned to online formats throughout the pandemic, are now starting to emerge out of this virtual and remote reality. FENS leadership and staff are looking forward to meeting members face to face once again through an exciting year of planned in-person and online neuroscience activities.

The most important event to mark in your calendars is the FENS Forum 2022, taking place from 9-13 July in Paris, France. It is the largest celebration of neuroscience in Europe. The FENS 2022 event at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles plans to welcome back the neuroscience community with an unparalleled in-person experience. An inspiring, diverse scientific programme will be complemented by lively poster sessions, special interest events, networking and social activities, providing numerous opportunities to connect face to face with world-class experts, peers and old and new friends in a safe and meaningful way. To secure your place, early registration, abstract submission and the FENS/IBRO-PERC Forum travel grant applications open on 1 December 2021. (…)
