We believe that the relationship mentors-mentees shapes the career of a scientist.
We established the Mentoring Prize ad PhD Prize every second year honoring leadership of an advisor and the work of PhD students in any domain of neuroscience.
It is part of our mission to communicate with the general public and policy makers about new findings in the field, discuss ongoing events, and highlight opinion and points of debate.
We provide an opinion on breakthroughs in Neuroscience and promote ideas to efficiently improve Neuroscience Research in Europe and Beyond.
It is part of our mission to work with politicians in Europe and the world to improve the conditions for establishing an academic career for scientists in their early years of independance.
Opinion articles written by the FENS-Kavli Scholars regarding the major obstacles and key determinants of a successful career in Neuroscience have been published in the European Journal of Neuroscience (EJN) starting with August 2015.
Already as a tradition, FKNE is organising a number of events at the FENS Forum, the largest neuroscience event in Europe that takes place in even years.
