Bernstein SmartSteps, Spring Talks 2021


The Bernstein SmartSteps series provides a unique platform for selected Early Career Scientists of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience to present their research projects to the scientific community. Once a month, starting in April 2021, one PhD candidate and one Postdoc who are ready to take their next (smart) step for their scientific career will discuss their research in an online seminar.

Join the Bernstein SmartSteps Series as an audience if you are interested in cutting-edge computational neuroscience and want to watch out for new talents in the field. The live talks will be held in Zoom. A recording will be published in a separate collection on the Bernstein Vimeo Channel.

Please sign-up here, if you would like to join for the live talks. A link to the event in Zoom will be sent shortly before via email.
