Discover more about the history of brain science through a presentation organised by the FENS History Committee and the Cajal Institute.
SiE10: Improving openness in animal research within the European neuroscience community (09:30-10:30)
The aim of this event is to reassure the scientific research community that speaking openly about their research will be a positive and not a negative experience. We hope that the event, will help to kick-start a cultural change and support research institutions to handle this issue constructively.
MSc and PhD neuroscience school programmes will present themselves during the NENS Graduate School Fair throughout the FENS Forum 2020. Join us at the NENS Fair where you will have the opportunity to share experiences and get detailed information about and from the graduate neuroscience programmes attending the Fair.
Improve your public presentation skills, create a story around your research or learn how to best answer journalists questions in this series of three workshops delivered by science communication specialist, Malcolm Love! This SiE includes a 10-min interactive Q&A session.
This is your chance to meet with representatives from business, industry and public sectors, all with a neuroscience background. The speakers will share with you how their neuroscience background contributed to their career-paths.
How can you best use Twitter in your science life? An interactive events to get some tips and tricks from a panel of specialists who use this tool to communicate and expand their research!
This special interest event offers a forum to discuss what we can do to adopt a more sustainable model for life-sciences. The organizers will present the results of a small survey performed among neuroscientists and their research institutes to trigger the discussion on the environmental footprint of our community and to start identifying solutions.
FENS and the Dana Foundation welcome those with an interest in public outreach to a poster session and discussion celebrating public awareness and engagement.
In this special event, we will hear about credibility initiatives that have the potential to increase the reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of neuroscience research, which will not only benefit scientific progress in the long-run, but also address a major cause for the poor mental health of research.
The aim of this workshop, which will be presented by the editors of four international, society-owned neuroscience journals, to discuss what happens to a paper once it is submitted to a journal.
