Second Class of FENS-Kavli Scholars Named

The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and the Kavli Foundation have announced the second cohort of FENS-Kavli Scholars.

The FENS-Kavli Scholars program was established in 2014 to promote the advancement of neuroscience in Europe and beyond through scientific exchange and communication. The fifteen new scholars — young investigators chosen for their scientific excellence, originality of their research, and promises for the future — will join twenty previously chosen scholars as members of the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence. Three meetings have been organized since the creation of the group, leading to new scientific collaborations, the publication of a series of opinion articles in the European Journal of Neuroscience, and the creation of the Best Thesis and Best Mentor in Neuroscience Awards.

"Through the generous support of the Kavli Foundation and in collaboration with FENS, the first cohort of outstanding young neuroscientists was elected in 2014 as the foundation of the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence," said FENS president-elect Barry Everitt. "This group has already clearly revealed through meetings and interactions the potential of the network and its exceptional value of openness, collaboration, diversity in expertise, and geographical distribution within the network."
