Brains for Brains Young Researcher Award

brainsforbrains2012.iconSince 2010, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience grants the Brains for Brains Award, which recognizes the special achievements of young scientists who have shown their outstanding potential already at a very early career stage – even before starting their doctoral studies.

Applicants should plan to pursue a research career in Computational Neuroscience and have at least one peer reviewed publication (as coauthor) or peer reviewed conference abstract (as first author) that was submitted before starting doctoral studies and was accepted or published in the year or preceding year of the award's call for applications.

Since 2017, the award is presented on a biennial basis. It is endowed with a travel grant of 2.000 € for a one-week trip to Germany, incl. a short talk at the award ceremony during the Bernstein Conference and individually planned visits to up to two German research institutions in Computational Neuroscience. The awards have been made possible by generous donations of the companies Multi Channel Systems MCS GmbH, Brain Products GmbH, Thomas Recording GmbH, Circular Informationssysteme GmbH, NVIDIA, neuroConn GmbH, and npi electronic GmbH.
