Connecting European Neuroscience

Mission & Goals

FENS mission is to advance research and education in neuroscience within and outside Europe, to facilitate interaction and coordination between its members.

Strategic Plan Update - July 2018

Message from the FENS Presidents

In 2009 the first Strategic Plan of FENS was designed with the perspective of being updated every second year. The Strategic Plan is important, since it provides plans for FENS in a short and a longer time perspective. It is critical for an organisation like FENS to develop clear goals and be able to implement them. 


Our task is to promote all aspects of neuroscience and be at the service of the European neuroscience community and all our member societies. We hope you will share our enthusiasm for the plans and the suggestions for change that we propose. We look forward to refining and implementing them in interaction with you all.
