The methods of neuroscience have advanced at spectacular speed. Young researchers are now required to learn and use a diverse range of bleeding-edge techniques. In order to benefit from these advances in technology, new approaches to training are desperately needed. This event will explore how current approaches could be improved to tackle present and future challenges in neuroscience training.
After a brief presentation about the current hands-on training opportunities in neuroscience, participants will hear from a panel representing prominent international neuroscience courses: What makes these courses popular/useful? What are the plans for the future? This will be followed by a Q&A session where panel members will discuss key issues and respond to questions from the audience.

This special interest event is jointly organised by the Cajal Training Programme, IBRO-PERC and FENS Committee for Higher Education and Training (CHET)


In order to prepare for this event and collect feedback from the community on the state of hands-on training in neuroscience, FENS CHET, the Cajal Training Programme and IBRO-PERC are holding a survey.

Please take a moment and fill out this survey on hands-on training
The collected information will be used as part of the background information for the event. Thank you
