About the Event
The 9th biennial conference ‘Neurizons 2020: Networks grow. Ideas flow’ was set to take place from the 26th to the 29th of May 2020, at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany.
With the global Covid-19 pandemic, a physical gathering like this would have risked the health and safety of several communities.
Many within the global community have shown great solidarity in an effort to ‘flatten the curve,’ and help healthcare systems around the world better cope with the rising number of infections. In the process, we saw a great increase in virtual communications; we stayed connected, and we found new ways to keep moving forward. Inspired by this solidarity and innovative perseverance, we have decided to turn Neurizons 2020 into the first virtual Neurizons conference. Despite this obstacle, or rather, especially during these hard times, let us strive to foster an environment that would allow for networks to grow, and for ideas to flow.
