1st Bernstein Network - DZNE Workshop took place in Freiburg

On October 20 and 21, 2014, the first joint workshop of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience (NNCN) took place at the Bernstein Center Freiburg (BCF) (October 2014).

Within the framework of the workshop, 20 scientists of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience (NNCN) explored perspectives for future cooperations.

DZNE and NNCN scientists introduced themselves through a "Scientific Speed Dating" and then presented the focus of their research work as well as the methodological approaches in short lectures. On this basis, areas of common interest were identified, topic-specific working groups formed, and ideas for potential cooperation projects gathered. The results of the working groups were presented to the plenary.

As a next step, DZNE and NNCN scientists are now called upon to develop joint project proposals that will be presented during a second workshop, which is scheduled to take place in Spring 2015. Interested DZNE and NNCN scientists may contact Andrea Huber Broesamle for further information (e-mail: andrea.huber@bcos.uni-freiburg.de).
