Tim Vogels is among 20 young European neuroscience researchers chosen to be the first FENS-Kavli Scholars.
The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) and The Kavli Foundation have announced the first FENS-Kavli Scholars, chosen for the excellence of their research, as well as promise to be among the field’s newest generation of extraordinary pioneers.
Launched this year, the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence aims to strengthen ties between emerging leaders in European science, establish links between the generation of emerging group leaders and senior scientists, and to foster on-going scientific excellence in Europe. The Scholars will be provided opportunities to meet with both young and senior leaders in neuroscience, with the goal of encouraging new ideas and international collaborations.
“The FENS-Kavli Scholars bring a record of outstanding scientific accomplishments to the network that will surely stimulate networking, discussion and interaction at the highest possible level among the scholars,” said Miyoung Chun, Executive Vice President of Science Programs, The Kavli Foundation.
This year’s scholars come from universities and research institutions based throughout Europe, as well as the United States, Japan and Israel.
