The 7th National PhD Conference in Neuroscience
This annual NRSN PhD conference 2019 will take place on 25-27 September 2019 at Bekkjarvik Gjestgiveri outside of Bergen. The planning of the conference has just begun and we hope to see all of you for stimulation scientific discussions, networking and fun next year!
About the conference
The annual PhD conference of NRSN is organized exclusively by PhD students, for PhD students. This is the perfect arena to meet other students in neuroscience from all over Norway and to practice your conference and presentation skills in a friendly atmosphere. All participants must submit an abstract and present their projects during the conference, either in a plenary oral presentation, or in a combined poster- and "blitz" presentation. The "blitz" is a super brief presentation where participants advertise their own poster. The best presentation in each category will be awarded with a 6000 NOK prize! The program will also include lectures by two invited speakers, group work, discussions, and social activities.
There is no conference fee, and NRSN will cover travel expenses and full-board accommodation for all participants.
Who can participate?
The conference is open to all members of NRSN, i.e., PhD candidates and research program ("forskerlinje") medical students who are working in the field of neuroscience and are affiliated with a Norwegian institution. Neuroscience is broadly defined and the conference aims at being equally relevant for basic and clinical researchers. We encourage students to attend from the very start of their research project to the last year of their PhD, as this gives them the chance to develop their professional network and improve their presentation skills over time, and to receive feedback on their projects at different stages.
If you are not already a member of NRSN, you may register for the conference and apply for membership at the same time.
The organizing committee consists of PhD candidates in neuroscience who are all members of NRSN. Feel free to contact your local representative in the committee if you have any questions regarding the conference.
This year´s organizing committee:
Michele Gianatti, UiO
Patty Huijgens, UiT

The next scientific writing workshop will be held on 18.-20. of February at Clarion Congress in Trondheim!
The 3rd Nordic Neuroscience meeting will be held in Helsinki 12-14th of June 2019. The Nordic meeting is for all neuroscientists in the Nordic and Baltic countries. Its objectives are to facilitate interactions between neighbouring countries and establish networks for future collaborations, as well as to achieve a greater knowledge of the neuroscience carried out in this part of the world.
Our newsletter is our main information channel. Here we announce courses, workshops, and grants available for our members and their supervisors. The newsletter is intended PhD supervisors, group leaders and course organizers in neuroscience.
