The FENS 2020 Virtual Forum features a series of Special Interest Events (SiE) which offer a different way of looking at neuroscience, aimed at those working in the field and the wider public.

You will also have plenty of opportunities to upgrade your communication skills: how can Twitter be useful in your science life? how can you create a story around your research or  best answer journalists’ questions?

Don’t forget, you won’t miss out on any events: the three-month extended access allows you to view any of the SiEs you are interested in on-demand! Find out more.
