As you may know, the 2020 meeting of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS; https://forum2020.fens.org/) will be held in Glasgow, 11th-15th July. The FENS meetings are some of the largest international neuroscience meetings. ANS is supporting its members to attend the FENS Forum by 

[1] providing travel scholarships for selected Early Career Researchers and 

[2] registration of ANS members at FENS member rates, which forms part of the FENS-ANS partnership agreement.

Two ANS travel scholarships for Early Career Researchers to attend FENS 2020

We are particularly pleased to be providing two travel scholarships to ANS members registered and presenting an accepted abstract at the 2020 FENS meeting. Each scholarship will be up to the equivalent of €2,000 in Australian dollars. To be eligible, applicants should be either undertaking a higher degree by research or be up to five years postdoctoral (relative to opportunity) and should be submitting an abstract to the meeting. To apply for these ANS scholarships, please submit a two-page CV, including a statement regarding why you wish to attend the meeting, a copy of the abstract to be submitted and evidence of student or postdoctoral status to the ANS Secretariat at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by COB Friday, 30 January 2020. An additional support letter from your supervisor can be included if wished but is not required. Note that payment of the travel scholarship will be dependent on evidence of acceptance of the abstract included in the application by the FENS meeting. The travel scholarships will also include a free ticket to the Young Investigators “Jump the FENS” party.

ANS members can benefit from registration at FENS members rates

All ANS members wishing to register for the FENS meeting can also benefit from the cheaper FENS member rates, which means significant savings. To take advantage of this opportunity please email your name, affiliation, email address and status (student or non-student) to the ANS Secretariat at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by COB Monday, 3 February 2020 (for Early Bird registration) or COB Monday, 8 June 2018 (for the late registration deadline). We will then organise an email to you from FENS with instructions on how to register for the meeting, paying the same rates as FENS members.

If you have any question about these opportunities, please email the ANS Secretary Prof Thomas Fath (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
