Young Researchers’ and Education Committee
Missions and Objectives
The Young Researchers’ and Education Committee (YREC) has four major aims:
- To encourage the professional development of young researchers
- To promote their participation in the scientific community and their visibility
- To channel their own initiatives
- To organize activities devoted to them, useful for their training and their future as independent scientists.
In its Education mission, the YREC channels all the information relative to Education in Neuroscience that can be useful for both teachers and students. The Committee encourages the participation of all SENC members in these goals, providing information, orientation, offering common activities, and actively collaborating in their development.
To coordinate and select the recipients of the Excellent Student Rita Levi Montalcini Award devoted to Predoctoral Researchers, and organize the “Rita Levi Montalcini Symposium” at the Biannual SENC Meetings.
