Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN)
The Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN) works to coordinate and improve educational activities for PhD candidates in neuroscience. By combining the specific expertise of four partner institutions (NTNU, University of Oslo, University of Bergen and Norwegian University of Life Sciences), 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.
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, and the daily management is hosted by the Faculty of Medicine, NTNU.
Membership in NRSN is open to all neuroscience PhD candidates who are working at a Norwegian institution, including research program medical students. Registered members keep all formal affiliations to their home institution and research group: NRSN represents a supplement to the existing PhD programs in Norway.

International Training Grants
NRSN offers individual grants to members who wish to attend courses or other research training activities abroad. Deadline for application: 1 March 2015.
The NRSN logo is developed by our member Sigrid Aune de Rodez Benavent and finalized by professional designer Camilla Næristorp. We hope the logo will contribute to make the research school and our activities known across the whole neuroscience community in Norway and create a unique and strong identity.
