What they say about the Schools
“These schools happen in a very relaxed setting where people can think outside the box. This is the kind of interaction which brings value and stimulates new ideas.”
Prof. Oscar Marin (King's College London, UK), Scientific co-chair of the FENS SfN Summer School 2014.
“It is an exceptional opportunity for the students to be in a placelike this where they can concentrate on the topic and meet great speakers who are available for them.”
Prof. Emiliana Borrelli (Universiry of California Irivine, USA), Scientific co-chair of the FENS SfN Summer School 2015.
“Given the small group size of relevant peers and the willingness of the speakers to discuss ideas, the school was a great forum for exchanging ideas, networking, disseminating our research, discussing how to progress in a research career and for getting some hints and tips on techniques.
Importantly, the lecture structure was more like a school and less like a typical conference presentation. There was a focus on delivering the key concepts and underlying hypothesis of the research theme and subsequently how the presenter’s results fitted within this context.”
