We are pleased to invite you to participate in the first Winter School entitled “Neuroscience meets Society: Transversal skills for future Neuroscientists” which will take place in Coimbra (Dec 11th-15th).
This school aims to provide Neuroscience students with the tools for the development of important “soft skills” crucial to a contemporary researcher. We expect to explore topics such as funding opportunities, scientific grant writing, ethics, public engagement, societal challenges, different communication techniques, and career development.
The course will bring together leading experts, both national and international, to deliver lectures, workshops, and hands-on sessions. The course is limited to 20 onsite participants (preferably early PhD students) and 5 PDBEB students. For selection purposes, please note that your application will not be considered without a letter of motivation (2 pages max) and CV (1 page max).
The Winter School has the support of IBRO, PDBEB and DYNA Brain project.
