Interested in applying for a NENS exchange grant?

Successful applicants are required to hand in a report after the completion of your training stay to the NENS Office. After the report is submitted the grantee will be reimbursed. The report will be published on the NENS Alumni Students page.

Candidates have the possibility to conduct an individually arranged training stay at a laboratory associated to a NENS school; students could also take part in organised courses offered by that NENS programme during the training stay in the laboratory.

Training must be completed during the year that follows the deadline of the application.

Preference will be given to early-stage students and those who intend to conduct methodological training for the integration in their research work.

International stays within the NENS community will be prioritised in accordance with the NENS ethos of fostering training and exchange at the level of graduate research and education across the European neuroscience community.
