NPlast Training / Events

During the next four years the NPlast network will organize 8 conferences that will be accompanied by different workshops and practical courses on relevant research topics in neuroscience. Moreover, professionalism seminars will provide essential skills outside of the scientific work. At the NPlast conferences the fellows will present and defend their projects in front of the network members and the scientific advisory board.

NPlast will also host two summer schools in 2013 and 2014. These summer schools will be organized by the ESR/ER and will last for one week each. Furthermore, NPlast will support for each ESR and ER the attendance of one national and one international meeting each year.

All fellows are fully integrated in the local host organizations with free access to all resources including local training opportunities that will be provided by the supervisors of the scientific projects. Finally the fellows have the possibility to complete a thesis leading to a PhD degree.
