Bernstein - Sloan Swartz Exchange Programm

The exchange program between the Bernstein Network and the Sloan-Swartz Centers for Theoretical Neurobiology fosters young talents and interconnects two lively Computational/Theoretical Neuroscience communities in the US and Europe.

The fellowships enable Bernstein fellows to attend the annual Meeting of the Sloan-Swartz Centers and, vice versa, Sloan-Swartz fellows to attend the Bernstein Conference in Germany. Since 2008, a total of almost 70 students and postdocs have been selected for the program.
