Mission and goals
Mission and goals
The aim of the Norwegian Neuroscience Society is to stimulate progress in neuroscience through representation of all related disciplines and practices in Norway, facilitate neuroscience research and education, and make information about neuroscience research and applications available to the general population.
Our main goals
- Promoting the study and understanding of the development, structure, and function of the nervous system in health and disease;
- Encouraging and facilitating multidisciplinary communication and collaboration in basic, applied, and translational neuroscience;
- Formally representing the neurosciences in Norway at the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and other relevant regional and international fora, including a Nordic neuroscience meeting to be organized every odd year;
- Promoting the dissemination of knowledge to those interested in neuroscience and related disciplines as well as to the general public through appropriate channels;
- Assisting in the training of neuroscientists and other professionals engaged in neuroscience teaching and research;
- Representing the interests of neuroscientists in Norway vis-à-vis appropriate Norwegian institutions, including legislators, policymakers, the press, and funding agencies engaged in supporting and promoting neuroscience research and education.
The 3rd Precision Neuroscience Conference will be held in Roanoke, Virginia, from May 25-27.
This conference features outstanding keynote speakers and 28 leading researches in mental health, neurodevelopment, brain cancer, aging, neurodegeneration, and injury. Poster submissions are currently being accepted. The conference is organized by basic, translational, and clinical neuroscientists from Nordic countries and Virginia.

Open letter on the Future of Research in Europe made a difference
Thanks to all supporters of the open letter on #futureofresearch. 27th November 2019, the Von der Leyen commision revealed the definitive title for commisioner Mariya Gabriel, which now explicitly mentions research, education and culture. For more information visit https://www.futureofresearch.eu/
Launch of the ALBA Network
Recently founded by a group of international leading scientists, the ALBA Network aims to promote equality and diversity in brain sciences. Professor Carmen Sandi, FENS President and Chair of the ALBA Steering Committee, would like to encourage all brain scientists to join the Network.
