Statement on the situation in Ukraine

It is with great sadness and concern that we see a war unfolding in Ukraine. As with our sister society EAN, ECNP remains an apolitical, neutral organisation representing neuroscience and healthcare professionals across Europe, including both Ukraine and Russia. We abhor the use of violence or war and see no place for either in settling disputes of any kind. We hope and plead for a rapid and peaceful resolution to this conflict, so that as many lives as possible may be spared.

We call for all agencies and organisations providing humanitarian aid in the region to receive the support and resources they need to respond to the crisis, and that they are not obstructed or prevented from providing humanitarian or medical assistance to those in need.

On behalf of ECNP, we ask you to consider contributing to organisations which are setting up relief efforts to help civilian casualties and refugees in the region.

We suggest supporting the ICRC (International Committee of the Red Cross).

ECNP Seminars are small-scale, interactive, live online courses in neuropsychopharmacology.

The aim of ECNP Seminars is to increase the level of knowledge and skills of future leading researchers and practitioners with a proven interest in the field of neuropsychopharmacology in locations where limited opportunities exist to attend international meetings.

The Brain Prize

The Brain Prize 2022

ECNP congratulates Silvia Arber, Ole Kiehn and Martyn Goulding on being awarded the Brain Prize for their work on the neuronal cell types and circuits that control movement.

The Brain Prize, the world’s largest brain research prize, is awarded by the Lundbeck Foundation.

Each year, they award 10 million DKK (approx. 1,3 million EUR) to one or more neuroscientists who have made a ground-breaking impact on brain research. The Brain Prize was first awarded in 2011.

One of the 2022 Brain Prize winners will give the Brain Prize Plenary Lecture at the 35th ECNP Congress

European Brain Research Area

EBRA Mapping Report available

The EBRA Mapping Report provides an overview of the current state of brain research in Europe and demonstrates the importance of continued investment.

The report shows that constant support and increased investment in brain research is still vital. Despite scientific and clinical efforts, we still face enormous challenges in the brain space.

Read the report on the EBRA website.
