2nd Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists – BraYn


The 2nd Brainstorming Research Assembly for Young Neuroscientists – BraYn, which will be held in Milan, Italy, from 14th to 16th of November 2019, is inspired and organized by researchers under the age of 40 from different backgrounds and with different scientific approaches. The meeting aims establish connections between the future protagonists of Italian neuroscience.

Every day, young Neuroscientists face the difficulties of carrying out their research at several levels; this conference is intended to be a useful meeting point to maximise the scientific investigation to its full potential. The philosophy of the conference is simple: to meet, connect, collaborate and share. Indeed we need to encourage cooperation among different research groups in order to broaden our horizons, and to contribute to the improvement in quality of Italian research.

The Congress venue, IRCCS Mario Negri Institute, is located outside the city center close to the train station “Milano Bovisa” which is easy to reach.
