The aim of this initiative is to provide, within the portfolio of IBRO Pan-European Regional Committee (PERC) training initiatives and neuroscience training activities, support for soft/translational skills that will help students to “survive in science.”

IBRO-PERC provides financial support for the organization of training activities, either onsite or virtual, on soft skills, including scientific writing, grant writing, poster design and presentation, oral presentation skills, team building, etc. These activities must provide participating students with a wide range of expertise, which when combined with high-quality neuroscience training will increase their chances to succeed in their scientific careers.
