    The ambition and scope of the BNA Festivals make them unparalleled across neuroscience. The BNA2021 event will:

    • bring together multiple organisations with an interest in brain research at a single, shared event, creating a novel, multi-organisation forum featuring all areas of fundamental research in neuroscience and psychology, from both academia and the commercial sector, plus clinical expertise in neurology and psychiatry.
    • include a programme of public events as well. Past Festivals have seen a rap performance about consciousness, lunchtime talks, sessions in schools, and much more.

    With the BNA2021 abstract submission deadline fast approaching (Friday 15th January), we’re excited to be able to give you a sneak peek of what online posters will look like at BNA2021!

  • – Neuro, Meet & Match Workshop – Postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic

    Due to the current active pandemic situation, the workshop originally scheduled on October 2nd is postponed to a later date, which will be soon communicated.

    The Junior Board of the BSN is thrilled to launch its first « Neuro, Meet & Match » workshop!

    This event will be the first interactive workshop to connect Belgium-based young neuroscientists from different disciplines from Molecular to Cognitive Neuroscience, and geographical regions from the docks of Antwerp to the slopes of Liège. We prepared a one-day program dedicated to promote exchanges and networking, and energize research ideas and creativity among the Neuroscience student community.

    We will have datablitz presentations and neurodating sessions split in topics of your choice and interests. We will also have two plenary sessions with a keynote lecture and career advice interactive session with coffee breaks, lunch and cocktail to further connect.

    The interactive sessions and matches will be determined based on abstracts and keywords selected in your registration, so please take the time of carefully selecting them. Your choice will pattern the content of the day!

    More information for date and registration coming soon
