The Network of European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI-NET)

European Research, particularly in the Neurosciences, depends critically on the creative contributions of young investigators. 

In recognition of this important need, 14 major European Neuroscience Institutes formed the Network of European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI-NET) in 2005 dedicated to the promotion of the independent work of young investigators.  Group leaders are supported by annual activities and interactions such as network meetings, retreats, workshops, lab visits as well as other types of joint activities and collaborations help to increase the mobility and interactions among young investigators and the European neuroscience community. In addition, the network also serves as a platform for joint grant applications of ENI-NET members.

Over the years, the ENI-NET has extensively grown with multiple institutes joining the initial 14 partner institutes. The network currently consists of 54 Young Investigator groups in 23 ENI institutes in 15 European countries. The alumni networks comprises around 60 members. 

ENI-NET is an open network with a central coordination office in Freiburg coordinating its activites in close collaboration with Professor Dr. Walter Stühmer, the steering committee and the scientific advisory board. For more information, please see what the structure of our network looks like.

From 2005 until 2010, ENI-NET was funded through the Marie Curie Coordination Action by the European Commission within the 6th Framework Program. As of 2011, funding is provided by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
