Call for FENS-JNS Young Researchers Exchange Support Program (YREP) to join the 11th FENS Forum of Neuroscience from July 7th to July 11th in Berlin, Germany

The Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS) and FENS support under the YREP agreement travel and/or accommodation costs associated with participation in respective JNS or FENS Meetings, or FENS supported Cajal training courses. YREP stipends up to a maximum of € 4,000 cover the actual travel expenses (economy flight only) and expenses linked to accommodation during the annual or biennial meetings, or the training period. This program is designed to help researchers broaden their research perspective and to encourage their research and social interaction. JNS helps and supports undergraduate or graduate students, working towards a master or PhD degree, or early phase postdocs (less than three years after PhD graduation at the time of the application deadline) to join the FENS biennial meetings in the even years, or the FENS-supported Cajal training programs in odd years.

We are now calling for the application for the 11th FENS Forum of Neuroscience.
