Call for Nominations - Braitenberg Award 2020/21

The call for nominations for the Valentin Braitenberg Award for Computational Neuroscience 2021 is open.


The Bernstein Network presents this award biennially to a scientist in recognition of outstanding research that contributes to the understanding of the functioning of the brain. The major criterion for the award is the impact or potential impact of the recipient's research on the field of brain science. In the spirit of Valentin Braitenberg's own research, special emphasis is given to theoretical studies elucidating the functional implications of brain structures and their neuronal network dynamics.

The awardee receives €5.000 prize money, donated by the Autonome Provinz Bozen Südtirol, as well as a Golden Neuron pin. The award will be presented in a special award ceremony at the online Bernstein Conference 2021, followed by a keynote lecture of the Braitenberg Awardee.

Nominations may be submitted by scientists working in the field of computational neuroscience and should include the following documents:
- One-page laudation, in which the scientific work of the candidate is honored with regard to the award criteria
- CV and list of publications
