This month’s meetings in Nice, France

During the coming days, the city of Nice, France will be hosting a number of very valuable ECNP meetings.

On 7-10 March the ECNP Workshop for Early Career Scientists in Europe is held. Around 100 Early Career Scientists come together with research leaders to discuss the latest advances and perspectives on specific topics.

On 10-11 March, the New Frontiers Meeting in Digital Health will bring together academics, industry leaders and regulators to explore exciting new areas of emerging science and map out promising new research horizons. This meeting is dedicated to the role of digital medicine in therapy development for brain disorders.

We wish the participants of both meetings a fruitful time in this beautiful city!

ECNP Seminars 2019

Every year ECNP hosts four ECNP Seminars, an interactive training course for future leading scientists in neuropsychopharmacology. Participants have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in a concentrated learning environment with local and international experts.

The Seminar is intended for European countries whose researchers and practitioners have limited opportunities to attend international meetings.

For 2019, two Seminars are now lined up:

29-31 March, Palanga, Lithuania
8-10 November, Zrenjanin, Serbia

If you are interested in organising a Seminar in your country, please let us know. You will find more details on our ECNP website.

Congratulations to the 2019 Brain Prize winners!

ECNP is pleased to congratulate the winners of the 2019 Brain Prize: French neuroscientists Marie-Germaine Bousser, Hugues Chabriat, Anne Joutel, and Elisabeth Tournier-Lasserve, from the Lariboisière Hospital and INSERM in Paris.

The prize honours the group’s outstanding 30-year research collaboration into small vessel strokes in the brain and the light it has shed onto the most common hereditary form of stroke. The Brain Prize comes with an award of € 1 million.

We look forward to welcoming one of the winners as our Brain Prize Lecturer at the 33rd ECNP Congress in Vienna, 12-15 September 2020.
