SMARTStart Joint Training Program in Computational Neuroscience - Goal

SmSt_LogoChief goal of the SMARTSTART Joint Training Program in Computational Neuroscience is to teach participants basic concepts, theories and techniques of Computational Neuroscience. Together with a mentor they develop an individual training program to supplement their previous experience. For this they may choose from a wide range of activities such as workshops, courses and lab rotations. These activities take place at numerous locations of the Bernstein Network as well as at further locations throughout Germany. A joint kick-off workshop with all participants and researchers and a final student retreat complement the two year-long training programs. A student can participate in either the first or the second component of the program.
