Connecting European Neuroscience

FENS Forum

Since the start in Berlin 1998, the FENS Forum has established itself as the largest neuroscience event in Europe. Taking place in even years, the FENS Forum rotates between different European countries and attracts more than 7,000 international delegates.

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FENS Forum 2020 was held entirely virtually. 

The FENS 2020 Virtual Forum brought together over 5,000 delegates from across the world. They could access and participate in all Forum events, including Plenary and Special Lectures, symposia, poster sessions, exhibition, networking and educational events and much more. The live FENS 2020 Virtual Forum took place on 11-15 July 2020, followed by three months of on-demand virtual access!







With 56 parallel symposia, more than 3,500 abstracts and 20 plenary and special lectures, the FENS Forum is Europe's largest international neuroscience meeting, covering the field from basic to translational research. Development, cognition, diseases of the ageing brain, stem cells and genetics are just a few of the key topics to be covered in an outstanding scientific programme.
