    The first virtual Neurizons conference

    NEURIZONS 2020: Networks grow. Ideas flow

    The 9th biennial conference ‘Neurizons 2020: Networks grow. Ideas flow’ was set to take place from the 26th to the 29th of May 2020, at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Göttingen, Germany. 

    With the global Covid-19 pandemic, a physical gathering like this would have risked the health and safety of several communities.

    Many within the global community have shown great solidarity in an effort to ‘flatten the curve,’ and help healthcare systems around the world better cope with the rising number of infections. In the process, we saw a great increase in virtual communications; we stayed connected, and we found new ways to keep moving forward. Inspired by this solidarity and innovative perseverance, we have decided to turn Neurizons 2020 into the first virtual Neurizons conference. Despite this obstacle, or rather, especially during these hard times, let us strive to foster an environment that would allow for networks to grow, and for ideas to flow.

    The talks will remain free of charge, but attendance of the live talks require registration.

    – The Neurizons 2020 team

    Welcome to Neurizons 2020, a multidisciplinary neuroscience conference organized by the students of the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Neuroscience, in Göttingen.

    Modern neuroscience encompasses countless research approaches; from fundamental molecular investigations, to large-scale explorations of networks and cognition, all converge to tackle issues of the mind. At Neurizons, we invite researchers to discuss the latest research in neuroscience from a multitude of disciplines.

    In addition to hosting renowned researchers, Neurizons promises a stage for young scientists to bring their own ideas forward, as well as a platform for learning and exchanging with masters in the field. Neurizons also offers a great learning opportunity for students; we offer workshops for soft skills, mentoring sessions for academic career advice, and a chance to explore and assess career paths both within and outside of academia with the help of our career fair.
