NRSN continuation

Relaunching NRSN

We are relaunching the Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN) in January 2022!

We have reached the minimum number of registered students that we need in order to relaunch, and we are officially up and running again! It is still possible to register, so please do not hesitate to do so by filling out the form in the link below or in the menu to the right. See below for what you can expect as a member of NRSN in 2022.

NRSN was initiated and coordinated in 2013 by members of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience (KISN) at NTNU together with a national committee of leading neuroscientists from each of the major Norwegian universities. We will now have a re-start as a dedicated project organized and run by KISN with the support and participation of the same partners.

Read more about our activities and why you should sign up in this flyer about NRSN (pdf).

The continuation of NRSN will be through a pay per student model, supported by supervisors and faculty leaders in our partner universities.

The supervisor can register their students for NRSN membership below. If you are a PhD student interested to join, please share this page with your supervisor.

What will you get as member of NRSN?

What will you get as member of NRSN?

Becoming a member of one of the largest PhD networks in Norway will provide you with the perfect way to get to know many Norwegian PhD students and to establish collaborations with other Norwegian neuroscience environments.

Additionally, the new NRSN will:

  • Continue the annual PhD conference with the motto ‘organized by students for students’. Travel and accommodation for the conference will be covered for members. Non-members who want to join pay the full cost plus overhead-charges. (1 ECTS)
  • Organize one writing or career event per year that is free for members. We guarantee that you will have the opportunity to participate in at least one of each in the three-year period as a PhD member. (1 ECTS)
  • Organize an annual summer school, for which participation will be free for members. We will provide grants to support travel costs. You will be able to participate in at least one summer school in the three-year period as a PhD member. Non-members who want to join pay the full cost plus overhead-charges. (3-6 ECTS)
  • Organize training opportunities in supervision, for which we aim to provide grants for (partial) coverage of travel and accommodation costs to members.
  • Provide access to courses at our partner institutions, for which you can apply for a grant to cover (at least part of) the travel and accommodation costs. (Up to 10 ECTS)

All courses and activities will contribute to your PhD education requirements by generating ECTS credits.
