HBP Education Programme Events

The HBP Education Programme provides an array of events throughout the year. These events are open to the whole student community, as well as early post-docs, and the participation of young female investigators is highly encouraged.

The events offer a platform for scientific discussion and interdisciplinary exchange among students and researchers. Participants are presented with new insights, take part in hands-on exercises and tutorials, and also get the opportunity to network and to work across various fields of expertise.

1st HBP Curriculum Workshop Series

The HBP Curriculum is composed of five online courses. Three courses teach science for non-specialists in the disciplines of neuroscience, medicine and ICT, and two more courses teach the complementary subjects of ethics and IPR. The first teaching cycle will start in January 2017. Each of the courses will be completed by a face-to-face workshop, for which the application process is already open!

These workshops are open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application, regardless of whether they are affiliated with the HBP or not.

Seven travel grants each will be available upon request (European students only).

Video lectures are now publicly available!

The HBP Education Website offers a collection of over 150 video lectures and student lightning talks that were recorded at events organised by the HBP Education Programme Office or provided by senior scientists. If permission was granted, additional presentation slides and abstracts are provided to complement each class.

All video lectures and lightening talks are available here.
