CogNeS programme a part of The Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS)

The Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS) was founded in 2003 and represents over 190 graduate schools and programmes across approximately 30 European countries that offer MSc, PhD and MD-PhD degrees in neuroscience.

NENS possesses the most comprehensive online source of information on neuroscience graduate education, schools and programmes in Europe, displayed by the NENS Programme Directory.  The graduate programmes registered with NENS and the students of these programmes benefit from NENS membership; find out more here and here

NENS is run by the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies, an international organisation, federating over 20,000 neuroscientists across 33 European countries, FENS works to promote all aspects of neuroscience through education, outreach and scientific exchange. Through the Strategic Plan, the FENS leadership outlines their priorities and goals to enable FENS to best serve the neuroscience community and all our member societies.

The international doctoral program in cognitive neuroscience, CogNes, is carried out in English. Its distinguishing feature is a flexible approach to the individual educational needs of postgraduate students, both through the selection of specialist courses that suit their needs and the emphasis on close cooperation between the doctoral student and the supervisor. The ordered methods will enable postgraduate students to acquire practical skills in the field of data analysis, writing scientific texts, developing presentation skills. They will also allow them to acquire theoretical knowledge about the methodology of sciences or specific subdisciplines in which the participants' doctoral projects will be implemented.
