The CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme is a FENS and IBRO initiative in partnership with Bordeaux Neurocampus (Bordeaux, France) and the Champalimaud Foundation (Lisbon, Portugal) whose objective is to establish dedicated neuroscience training facilities in Europe. Six schools are hosted each year offering state-of-the-art hands-on training courses in neuroscience. They are designed by first-class neuroscientists and consist of 2-to-3-week project-based courses for approximately 20 international students.


Grant amount: Up to €3,000

IBRO’s Pan European Regional Committee (IBRO-PERC) InEurope Short Stay Grants fund visits to European institutions by researchers living and working within Europe, so that they can acquire new methods or specific techniques that are necessary for their work.

The aim of the program is to increase intra-European mobility of young researchers by providing grants for short, goal-directed exchanges within European laboratories. The duration of such visits is limited to a maximum of four weeks. Funding can be used to cover travel and local expenses.


- PhD students and young postdoctoral fellows
- 35 years of age or younger
- Only applicants from the European region will be considered

Application calls are open two times per year, one month prior to selection. Applications can only be submitted online. Applicants who are not selected in one round of evaluations are eligible to apply for other rounds. Within two weeks after the research activity has ended, awardees are required to send a brief report and pictures (preferable but optional) suitable for posting on the IBRO website and social media.



Grant amount: Up to €4,000

With the aim to foster cooperation among young European neuroscientists, IBRO-PERC awards partial funding for Meetings, Workshops and Symposia on important topics in neuroscience organized in European countries. Preference is given to activities that include younger scientists and offer training for scientists from countries with limited resources for research or teaching.

The application must include in a single document:

- Title of meeting, workshop or symposium
- Dates and venue
- Curriculum Vitae (CV) of the applicant
- Preliminary program
- List of participants
- Purpose of IBRO-PERC funding
- Other sources of funding received or applied for (including amounts). 

Applications must be submitted by email to the IBRO-PERC Chair, Prof. Hans-Joachim Pflueger, at [email protected]

The coordinator must submit a report of activities, list of participants and a report outlining the use of IBRO funds within 60 days after the activity. A summary of up to 200 words in English with pictures (preferable but optional) should also be submitted for posting on the IBRO website and social media. All information should be sent to IBRO-PERC Chair Prof. Hans-Joachim Pflueger at [email protected]

Application Deadline: February



With the aim to facilitate contact between young students and high profile neuroscientists, experience their enthusiasm for brain research and gain first-hand knowledge on modern topics in neuroscience, IBRO-PERC supports the organization of special lectures. These are two 1-2 day long conferences in developing countries, in cooperation with research centres or universities, in which a renowned European neuroscientist lectures about his/her topic of expertise. They carry the title “IBRO-PERC Neuroscience Lectures." A summary report in English with pictures (preferable but optional) should also be submitted for posting on the IBRO website and social media.

Applications are to be submitted only by email to IBRO-PERC Chair Prof. Hans-Joachim Pflueger at [email protected]

The application must include in a single document:

- Title of the lecture
- Dates and venue
- Curriculum Vitae (CV) of the applicant
- Preliminary program and budget

IBRO World Congress. Every four years, IBRO holds a World Congress. IBRO-PERC awards travel grants to European researchers in order to support their participation. The next IBRO World Congress will be held in Daegu, South Korea, in 2019. A travel grant application call will be sent out closer to the Congress date so check back on our website and social media.

FENS Forum. Every two years, FENS hosts the FENS Forum in a European city. IBRO-PERC supports travel grants for researchers to attend. The next FENS Forum will be in Copenhagen, Denmark in July 2016. Applications have already closed for this year's event but check back on our website and social media for the following Forum to be held in Berlin, Germany, in 2018.



Grant amount: Up to €1000

IBRO-PERC offers stipends for researchers to attend the bi-annual Brain Conferences, a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe organised by FENS in collaboration with The Brain Prize, also known as the Grete Lundbeck European Brain Research Prize, awarded by the Grete Lundbeck European Brain Research Foundation, a charitable, non-profit organization founded by the Lundbeck Foundation. These conferences bring together outstanding researchers in key areas of contemporary neuroscience to discuss current concepts and define challenges for future research.
