Where European neuroscience meets the world, and Noldus! FENS Forum has been one of our favorite neuroscience conferences in Europe and we've been exhibiting for years. The FENS forum has been organized every other year since 1998, and after a first time virtual forum in 2020, we’re looking forward to meeting you in-person in Paris this summer!

Why attend FENS, Forum of European Neuroscience

FENS Forum 2022 - July 9-13, 2022 in Paris, France

Founded in 1998 at the first Forum of European Neuroscience, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) is the main organization for neuroscience in Europe. This international organization works to promote all aspects of neuroscience and is federating over 20,000 neuroscientists from more than 30 European countries. 

Europe’s largest international neuroscience conference

The biennial FENS Forum is Europe’s largest international neuroscience conference, covering all domains in modern brain research from basic to translational research.

This year the conference program offers anything from mini-conferences and poster sessions, to special interest groups and technical workshops, and even an Open Theatre. There will be plenty of networking events and times to socialize as well.

The Brain Debate

The “Brain Debate” is a panel discussion on the topic of “Building and understanding brains: how can AI research inform neuroscience?” A panel of scientists and researchers will discuss how new work in AI research can guide our understanding of biological brains, from cells to systems to behavior.
