How can you best use Twitter in your science life? An interactive events to get some tips and tricks from a panel of specialists who use this tool to communicate and expand their research!
Organised by The European Brain Council, in collaboration with FENS and the International Brain Research Organisation (IBRO) in the framework of the FENS Forum, this Special Interest Event will focus on the topic of Global Research Collaboration, highlighting the existing partnerships within research—specifically, brain research—in the European Union, the United States and China.
With this panel discussion, the ALBA Network and The FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence provide an opportunity for supporting the careers of researchers from underrepresented groups.
SiE13: Animal experimentation and the search for alternatives – current developments and future perspectives (09:30-10:30)
The principles of replacement, refinement and reduction – the “Three Rs” put forward by the European Directive on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes – continue to shape scientific research across the EU and beyond. In this context, the search for alternatives to animal models increasingly influences the development of research projects. At the same time, the importance of employing the correct model – animal or otherwise – remains key to the reliability, and indeed utility, of any results.
In this special event, we will hear about credibility initiatives that have the potential to increase the reproducibility, replicability, and reliability of neuroscience research, which will not only benefit scientific progress in the long-run, but also address a major cause for the poor mental health of research.
The aim of this workshop, which will be presented by the editors of four international, society-owned neuroscience journals, to discuss what happens to a paper once it is submitted to a journal.
