On January 1, 2019, the SMARTSTART Program accepts the next round of applications. SMARTSTART is the Joint Training Program in Computational Neuroscience of the Bernstein Network; the program is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation.

The program offers students (SMARTSTART 1) and prospective doctoral students (SMARTSTART 2) the opportunity to complement their previous studies with concepts, theories and techniques of computational neuroscience.

 Target groups

1. students who are enrolled in a relevant Master's program in Germany during the funding period (Sep 19 - Sep 20) (SMARTSTART 1) and

2. students who have successfully completed a relevant Master's program at the start of their funding period without having started a doctoral project, yet (SMARTSTART 2).

 Application window

The SMARTSTART program was launched in 2016 with the support of the Volkswagen Foundation. Since then, more than 60 students have successfully completed the program. Many of them are currently continuing their research projects as doctoral projects.
