The FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence is a network of 30 outstanding early to midcareer European neuroscientists.
The Network was established in 2014 through a collaboration by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and the Kavli Foundation.
The multidisciplinary, international Network of FENS-Kavli Scholars is self-organised and aims to improve Neuroscience in Europe and beyond through scientific exchange, providing opportunities for young scientists, and facilitating dialogue between scientists, policy-makers, and society.
FKNE Scholars participate in ~ 2 meetings per year that allow for lively discussion of a range of topics across Neuroscience as well as challenges and opportunities for European neuroscientists.
Scientific exchange within and beyond the Network FKNE Scholars participate in ~2 meetings per year that allow for lively discussion of a range of topics across Neuroscience as well as challenges and opportunities for European neuroscientists.
Science policy actions through white-paper recommendations to European stakeholders on major barriers encountered by young and mid-career neuroscientists (funding schemes, scientific publishing, etc.).
Community activities. Childcare grants and mentoring & PhD thesis prizes established by FKNE are awarded during the FENS Forum. Scholars have co-authored several opinion articles about key issues for early-stage researchers.
Outreach activities through communications with the general public about brain research.
