NeuroMarseille day: exceptional gathering of the community

NeuroMarseille invites the neuroscience community on Tuesday, June 28th - 2022, for a scientific and convivial day of gathering: no better way to put the institute's actions into perspective!

Once a year, a special day for all of us!

Every year, NeuroMarseille concentrates on reinforcing the visibility of neuroscience in Marseille: European partnerships, grants dedicated to innovative and collaborative research, actions for and by students, animation of the community with events… This dynamic has led us to a good level of cohesion and competence in the laboratory teams. Now, we are delighted to bring the community together for an enriching day: the highlight is undoubtedly the lecture by Prof. Olaf Blanke, but you should also be interested in a wide range of workshops, debates and short seminars given by the winners of the 2020 ICR grant. This event is meant to be a friendly one, a rare moment where the whole neuroscientific community of Marseille can meet: the lunch buffet offered by the two host laboratories, the LNC and the LPC, will be the place to enjoy each other’s company. The students we welcome as part of our NeuroSchool programme are not to be outdone: some are part of the organisation, and a meeting with Prof. Blanke is specially dedicated to them. They are also invited to participate in the day’s events.

Join us to enjoy this transversal and unifying day:

📅  June 28th, 2022 – 9:00 am to 5:30 pm
📍 Saint Charles campus – welcome desk in front of the Charve Amphitheatre (Physics building #9)


Meet at the Saint Charles campus

Details concerning events

Note that for some events of the day, you will have to register. Presentations of the ICR 2020 grant laureates and the conference by O. Blanke, the renowned director of the Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience at EPFL in Lausanne, will be held respectively in the Charve and Sciences Naturelles amphitheatres : both require registration since places are limited. Workshops are organized in 2 sessions: one in the morning, from 9 to 10 am, and one in the afternoon, from 3 to 5:00 pm. It will be possible to follow several workshops according to your interests and the schedule: note that, for logistical matters, you must also register to participate.

Obviously, you’ll also need to register for the lunch buffet and the photographer!

You will find a summary of the program below, as well as the detailed content of the lectures and workshops. Once you have made your choice, please fill in the registration form.
