Connecting European Neuroscience

European History of Neuroscience Online Projects

This initiative aims to create a virtual public platform for hosting autobiographies, videos, pictures and other electronic materials relating to renowned European neuroscientists and their work.

The FENS History Committee organises annual calls for European History of Neuroscience Projects, to document the history and development of neuroscience in Europe.

The best projects are selected for support of up to €1,500 (a detailed budget is expected). The grants prioritise projects in which historic material such as films, photos, images or histological slides are presented on the web.

Projects should be completed within 1-2 years and are posted on a dedicated online platform.
