“Neurological burden and European invest: a disconnect”

Booklet for Kick-off Symposium ‘Together for Brain Research’, January 2021

In January 2021 the ERA-NET NEURON held its Kick-off Symposium ‘Together for Brain Research’. As Etienne Hirsch and Bernard Poulain, the organizers of the symposium pointed out: “The collective writing of the updated SRA highlights priorities such as sharing of resources, which has been identified as an essential pillar in developing the knowledge and technologies necessary for tackling down brain-related diseases. With 27 partner members from 23 countries, the NEURON network is larger than ever and express a strong desire to strenghten its relation with other European organisations toward this common goal. For this reason, we decided to open this new period with a scientific symposium intitled “Together for Brain Research”, bringing together renowned researchers and organisations to discuss how to work together in tackling brain diseases”.

“Young Scientists in ERA-Net Neuron joint call 2009”

The ERA-NET NEURON performed a monitoring study to explore the position of young scientists in the 2009 ERA-Net NEURON joint transnational call “Technology Development”. Based on the study, no indication of a bias toward older researchers was observed. This indicates the transnational funding scheme from ERA-NET NEURON is a relevant source of funding for young researchers at the early stages of their careers.
