The Brain Conferences Committee

Set up in 2012, the Brain Conference Committee is a special Committee responsible for the successful implementation of the Brain Conferences series.

This biannual conference series is organised and financed through a partnership between FENS and the Lundbeck Foundation. They aim to promote excellence, scientific exchange and visibility for diverse topics in contemporary neuroscience. It focuses on the highest degree of scientific excellence worldwide by continuously engaging leading experts as scientific chairs and speakers.
