ECNP Workshop in Nice 2018: Highlights
The three-day ECNP Workshop for Junior Scientists in Europe took place in Nice, France on 15-18 March 2018. Close to 100 enthusiastic junior scientists from Europe came together with research leaders to discuss the latest advances in neuroscience and perspectives on specific topics.
An interactive poster session also brought together a dynamic group of young researchers who presented their research information during the workshop. We wish all the participants good luck in going forward and contributing to high-quality experimental and clinical research in mental disorders and their treatments.
"The workshop in Nice had a special selected group which
was constantly interactive. The atmosphere could have not been better and the
scientific content has brought us very interesting insights."

First ECNP Seminar, this year, in Volgograd
Every year ECNP organises a number of Seminars to provide an interactive training course for future leading scientists in neuropsychopharmacology.
The ECNP Seminar is intended for European countries whose researchers and practitioners have limited opportunities to attend international meetings. This year's first ECNP Seminar took place in Volgograd, Russia on 23-25 April. It was a huge success with local and international experts coming together with 60 local early career scientists to create an enriching learning environment.
A local artist also created a postcard to thank the ECNP experts who participated in the Seminar. We would like to thank the artist Stanislav Azarov for this beautiful token of appreciation.
