This year the EURON PhD days will be organized as a joint PhD student meeting with the Institute of Neuroscience (IoNS) of the Université catholique de Louvain.
It will be an opportunity for exchanging your results and ideas and get acquainted with recent scientific developments outside your own university, in an international context.

The venue for the meeting is on the campus of the Université catholique de Louvain, Avenue Mounier, Brussels.

The programme of the meeting consists of three main sessions focusing on:
