The Young Neuroscientists Meeting (YNM) is a long-standing annual tradition, allowing neuroscience students from cities throughout the region, including Rijeka, Trieste, Belgrade, Ljubljana, Maribor and Zagreb, to meet and network with each other, as well as gain experience at presenting in an international environment. In 2020, Rijeka is the European Capital of Culture, while Trieste is hosting the EuroScience Open Forum. In celebration of this, the 24th edition of the YNM will consist of a two-day event, hosted by the University of Rijeka, Department of Biotechnology
DATE: June 24-25, 2020
VENUE: UNIVERSITY CAMPUS, RIJEKA
Day 1: Scientific meeting
The first day will follow the traditional format of previous YNMs, with 24 doctoral students having the opportunity to present their research to an audience consisting of their colleagues and supervisors. Postdoctoral researchers act as hosts. Additionally, we invite undergraduate and graduate students who are engaged in neuroscience research, to present their findings in the form of posters.
Day 2: Public event
The second day is open to the public, and will provide an opportunity for them to engage and understand neuroscience, and the work being performed on it in the region. This will occur through a number of events, including public lectures and awareness talks. In collaboration with the School of Art, a special “Neuro-ART” exhibition will be hosted. Additionally, a number of workshops and activities will be provided, being run by young neuroscientists from Rijeka and our partner institutions.
We invite all neuroscience students, form our partner institutions and elsewhere, to contact us and get involved.
To present on day 1 please fill out REGISTRATION FORM Applications to present on day 1 are due by 30th April 2020. A maximum of 24 students will be able to give oral presentations, with priority going to doctoral students who have not presented previously at a YNM. For other students, there will be the opportunity to give a poster presentation.
