F-ESN Autmn School 2018

3rd F-ESN Autmn School

1-5 October, 2018
Seminar-Center, Freie Universität Berlin
“A Toolbox for Neuropsychological Research and Practice”:

The FESN will organise its third Neuropsychology School to be held in Berlin from 1 to 5 October 2018, thanks to the local organisation of Professor Michael Niedeggen and Ina Nordwald. The school is addressed to graduate students in their final years of PhD, or early post-docs, as well as clinicians at a comparable level of career. About 40 participants are invited from all partaking National Societies.

The programme is taught by experts in their field, and aimed at providing state-of-the-art knowledge and skills for students and postdocs working in all areas of neuropsychology. Apart from an interesting programme, the school offers lots of opportunity to socialise and develop a European network of young neuropsychological researchers. The Wednesday, 3rd of October, is a public holiday. This day, “Tag der Deutschen Einheit”, is free to discover and enjoy Berlin.
