The objective of the Cajal Training Programme is to establish dedicated neuroscience training facilities in Europe.

The CAJAL Advanced Neuroscience Training Programme is an independent international non-profit organization built upon a FENS and IBRO initiative in partnership with the Gatsby Charitable FoundationBordeaux Neurocampus (France) and the Champalimaud Foundation (Lisbon, Portugal). Courses are project-based and combine lectures by renowned scientists with experimental sessions on state-of-the-art techniques. 

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.  The programme includes cutting-edge techniques and concepts relevant to modern neuroscience in a diverse array of disciplines.

Stipends are available for the following upcoming courses.
