This event is convened by the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence. This workshop will communicate insights and experience on advocacy activities for neuroscience policy and funding in Europe.
The goal of the workshop is to inform neuroscience researchers about strategies, mechanisms, and challenges of science advocacy in Europe; and to encourage individuals to find effective ways of engaging on policy issues.
Speakers will include active neuroscientists with significant experience in science advocacy, as well as policy professionals who work on a daily basis in implementing neuroscience funding and organization.
The event will include a panel discussion where audience engagement is highly encouraged.
