FENS Forum 2018 - Berlin, Germany

External Event - 7th to 11th Jul 2018



As a member of the BNA you also get FREE membership of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS). This benefit gives you approximately 30% off registration rates at all FENS meetings including Berlin 2018.  

The FENS Forum of Neuroscience is the largest international neuroscience meeting in Europe, involving all neuroscience societies members of FENS, and attracting more than 6000 international delegates.

The combined cost of BNA membership + members' registration for FENS2018 is still less than the non-members' rates.  In other words, join the BNA to save money!
