EURON PhD candidates meet annually at the PhD Days, in turn organized at one of the partner universities. The organization is a testimony to the excellent cooperation between the local staff and their PhD candidates and PhD candidates from the other participating institutions.
The scientific part of the programme shows the high quality of the research and diversity of topics and methodologies within EURON. PhD students present their research work via oral and poster presentations and EURON staff researchers and external speakers are invited. In addition, the programme consists of networking workshops and interactive discussion groups to enhance the soft skills of our PhD candidates.
Annually EURON staff researchers meet to further stimulate scientific collaborations between the partners.
EURON is a member of the Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS) representing over 190 graduate schools and programmes across approximately 30 European countries that offer MSc, PhD and MD-PhD degrees in neuroscience. Both Programme directors and students of these programmes will benefit from NENS membership e.g. to exchange best practices and to be informed on higher education, training activities and support provided by FENS/NENS.
