FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence: Science needs strong European cohesion

Eur J Neurosci. 2023 Dec;58(12):4438-4440. doi: 10.1111/ejn.15814. Epub 2022 Sep 21.


Decades of scientific collaboration have brought innovation, prosperity and wide societal benefit to Europe. However, recent political events have impacted pan-European research and collaborations, and solutions are yet to materialise. Here, we argue that a vibrant, united European Research community led by its members and independent from political bodies is needed for Europe to remain a successful, interconnected scientific hub and keep delivering globally competitive science. The Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) is in an ideal position to play a paramount role in this endeavour.
