Satellite Events are independent of but related to the FENS Forum 2020. Although Satellite Events are organised independently, they are highly recommended by the FENS Forum Committee. They all have qualified state-of the-art scientific programme.

Satellite Events will be closely linked to the Forum dates and will run before and after the Forum.

Information about locations and dates will be published here in due course.
