CAJAL TRAINING PROGRAMME

*Applications open for 2017 courses*

The CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme is a FENS and IBRO initiative in partnership with Bordeaux Neurocampus (Bordeaux, France) and the Champalimaud Foundation (Lisbon, Portugal) whose objective is to establish dedicated neuroscience training facilities in Europe. Six schools are hosted each year offering state-of-the-art hands-on training courses in neuroscience. They are designed by first-class neuroscientists and consist of 2-to-3-week project-based courses for approximately 20 international students.

IBRO-PERC InEUROPE SHORT STAY GRANTS

Grant amount: Up to €3,000

IBRO’s Pan European Regional Committee (IBRO-PERC) InEurope Short Stay Grants fund visits to European institutions by researchers living and working within Europe, so that they can acquire new methods or specific techniques that are necessary for their work.

The aim of the program is to increase intra-European mobility of young researchers by providing grants for short, goal-directed exchanges within European laboratories. The duration of such visits is limited to a maximum of four weeks. Funding can be used to cover travel and local expenses.

Eligibility:

- PhD students and young postdoctoral fellows
- 35 years of age or younger
- Only applicants from the European region will be considered

Application calls are open two times per year, one month prior to selection. Applications can only be submitted online. Applicants who are not selected in one round of evaluations are eligible to apply for other rounds. Within two weeks after the research activity has ended, awardees are required to send a brief report and pictures (preferable but optional) suitable for posting on the IBRO website and social media.

IBRO-PERC SUPPORT FOR EUROPEAN WORKSHOPS, SYMPOSIA AND MEETINGS

With the aim to foster cooperation among regional young neuroscientists, IBRO’s Pan-European Regional Committee (PERC) invites requests for partial funding of Meetings, Workshops and Symposia on important topics in neuroscience organized in European countries during 2017. Preference will be given to activities that include younger scientists and offer training for scientists from countries with limited resources for research or teaching.

The application must include in a single document:

- Title of meeting/workshop/symposium
- Place and dates
- Coordinator’s name (please include one-page CV)
- Preliminary program
- List of participants
- Purpose of IBRO-PERC’s funds

Applications must be submitted by email to, Prof. Jochen Pflueger, at pflueger@neurobiologie.fu-berlin.de.

The coordinator must submit a report of activities, participants and use of IBRO funds within 60 days after the activity. A summary of up to 200 words in English should also be submitted to be posted at the IBRO website. Pictures are always welcome as well. Please send all information to pflueger@neurobiologie.fu-berlin.de.

Application Deadline: February

IBRO-PERC SITE LECTURES

With the aim to facilitate contact between young students and high profile neuroscientists, experience their enthusiasm for brain research and gain first-hand knowledge on modern topics in neuroscience, IBRO-PERC supports the organization of special lectures. These are two 1-2 day long conferences in developing countries, in cooperation with research centres or universities, in which a renowned European neuroscientist lectures about his/her topic of expertise. They carry the title “IBRO-PERC Neuroscience Lectures." A summary report in English with pictures (preferable but optional) should also be submitted for posting on the IBRO website and social media.

Applications are to be submitted only by email to IBRO-PERC Chair Prof. Róbert Gábriel at gabriel@gamma.ttk.pte.hu.

GLOBAL ADVOCACY SEED GRANTS

Grant Amount: Up to 5,000 EUR

IBRO-PERC awards global advocacy seed grants to support neuroscience societies, groups and organizations in the Pan-European region that would like to conduct advocacy events and activities in their local areas. Up to €5,000 is awarded to each successful proposal. The events and activities should address the specific needs of neuroscience advocacy in the country where they are being held. They can include public lectures, brain awareness fairs, conferences, educational symposia for policymakers, educators and the public, videos or multimedia products to increase awareness, etc. Please note that Global Advocacy Seed Grants are NOT for Research Projects or Fellowships.
