First virtual joint Research in Germany appearance at the FENS Virtual Forum

First virtual joint Research in Germany appearance at the FENS Virtual Forum

It was supposed to be a summer event in Glasgow, Scotland. The former industrial city and the United Kingdom’s third largest city was meant to be the destination for countless neuroscientists from Europe and other parts of the world. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic changed everything. The organisers of the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) decided early on to convert the conference of European neuroscience societies into a virtual event. Instead of meeting at a conference venue, participants came together on an animated virtual conference platform with elaborately designed graphics.
