Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN)

The Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN) is a new initiative, bringing together the research training expertise in the field of neuroscience from NTNU, University of Oslo, University of Bergen and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences.

By combining the specific expertise of the participating institutions, the NRSN aims to facilitate the PhD research training that will enable the next generation of Norwegian-trained neuroscientists to face the great challenges and opportunities in the field.

The NRSN is funded by the Norwegian Research Council, with an annual budget of around 3 Mill NOK. The NRSN board is composed of representatives from all partner institutions. The daily management is hosted by the Faculty of Medicine, NTNU.

The NRSN will endorse a portfolio of high quality PhD courses at all partner institutions. We will facilitate nationwide participation, giving travel grants to all NRSN members taking courses outside of their home institution. An ambitious summer school program will also be launched.

All PhD Candidates in the field of neuroscience working at a Norwegian institution, are welcome to apply for membership in NRSN. Registered members keep all formal affiliations to their home institution and research group: NRSN represents an addition to the offer from the individual institution.

All those interested in NRSN's activities are most welcome to sign up for our newsletter.
