Welcome to the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience

The „National Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience“ (NNCN) is a funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) that fosters the research discipline of Computational Neuroscience.

By establishing regional centers and nation-wide interconnections, the network aims at establishing the scientific concept of Computational Neuroscience in a sustainable fashion in Germany, and in making it internationally visible. The combination of experimental and theoretical approaches, the integration of neuroinformatics as well as the training of young researchers are central structural principles. The innovative potential of the neurosciences is stimulated by links to biomedical and technological application fields.
