NRSN National Neuroscience Symposium

NRSN National Neuroscience Symposium


29 June - 1 July 2021

In the end of August 2021, our current funding will run out and the future of NRSN is uncertain. We would therefore like to invite you to our celebratory NRSN event to highlight the broadness of neuroscience research across universities in Norway, show what NRSN has achieved through these eight years, and also emphasize the importance for continuation of NRSN as a crucial supplement to the neuroscience PhD education. 

The event will take place at the award winning hotel, Norefjell Ski & Spa, 1h 50min drive by bus from Oslo.

The Norwegian Research School in Neuroscience (NRSN) was funded by the Norwegian Research Council for an eight-year period, starting in spring 2013. NRSN brings together the expertise of neuroscientists at universities across Norway, and works to coordinate and improve educational activities for PhD candidates in neuroscience. 

We hope that all neuroscientists will come together and celebrate the excellent neuroscience community in Norway and support the future of a collaborative neuroscience education in Norway in the form of NRSN.
