Neuronautes is the association of neuroscience students of Aix-Marseille University. Composed of students and former graduates, our organization aims to promote neuroscience and to provide a platform for exchange between institutional and professional student partners. Since 2016, the association has already welcomed more than 3000 participants at various events and more than 50 prestigious guests. The association is composed of a small office, which is accompanied during the preparation of the events by many active members. In September 2019, the association was awarded the first prize for student initiatives by the Marseille City Council.

Neuronautes is above all events and encounters. On the program this year:

  • Conferences for the general public, particularly as part of Brain Awareness Week.
  • Neurotalks, i.e. interactive encounters with professionals from all scientific backgrounds.
  • Charity actions (blood donation, neurodon)
  • Coffee-debates around various science themes (including Pint of Science)
  • Campus events (such as the Printemps des Associations)
  • And many other surprises in the making…
