The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience

(December 2019, click to enlarge)

The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience extends all across Germany and nowadays has many international members throughout the world. The network got started in 2004 through an extensive funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

Core elements of the Bernstein Network are the Bernstein Centers for Computational Neuroscience in Berlin, Freiburg, Heidelberg-Mannheim, Munich and Tübingen. The network brings together researchers and scientific expertise in experimental and theoretical neuroscience in Germany and connects them internationally. The interdisciplinary dialog between experimentally and theoretically working scientists is of utmost importance and is fostered at all Bernstein Sites. With the Bernstein Conference the network organizes the largest annual computational neuroscience conference in Europe.

Scientists in the Bernstein Network significantly contribute to neuroscience programs at their local institutions educating young researchers. The cross-institutional program SMARTSTART specifically prepares young researchers for the interdisciplinary nature of computational neuroscience, embedding them in a fruitful research network at a very early career stage. 

The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience is open to all researchers in the field or related subjects. Individual membership must be supported by two active Bernstein members. Find further information here.
