About the ALBA-FKNE Diversity Prize

With this prize, the ALBA Network and the FENS-Kavli Scholars wish to highlight a scientist or group that has made outstanding contributions to promoting equality and diversity in brain sciences.

This prize will be awarded by the ALBA and FKNE networks, annually, at either the FENS Forum or the FENS Regional Meetings (FRM).

Erin Schuman, Director of the Department of Synaptic Plasticity at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, was the recipient of the first ALBA-FKNE Diversity Award, awarded at the FENS 2020 Virtual Forum.
