Field trip to Berlin for Master Students Neuroscience and Cognition
Field trip to Berlin for Master Students Neuroscience and Cognition from Utrecht University
The NVN has recently co-sponsored a 5-day trip to Berlin for 35 students following the Neuroscience and Cognition Master’s program at Utrecht University. This included visits of various neuroscience-related institutions located in Berlin.
The initiative aimed to broaden horizons, foster intellectual growth, and create meaningful connections within the scientific community. “I really enjoyed spending time with my fellow neuroscience students and visiting the different institutions and companies,” one of the students wrote.
From the moment the students set foot in the vibrant city of Berlin, they were immersed in a world of innovation and academic excellence. The students participated in a program of engaging lectures, and site visits to esteemed institutions and companies such as the Charite Hospital, Freie Universität Berlin, Max Delbrück Center, and ANT Neuro. They had the privilege of attending thought-provoking sessions and workshops led by renowned researchers, delving into cutting-edge research on topics ranging from brain imaging, neuroanatomy, translational neuroscience and cognitive research.
Beyond the academic activities, the students also had the chance to experience Berlin's rich cultural environment by exploring historic landmarks and engaging with the local community. This immersive experience allowed them to not only expand their intellectual horizons but also appreciate the interconnectedness between science, culture, and society.
At NVN, we firmly believe in fostering a culture of continuous learning and supporting the pursuit of knowledge. This educational trip embodies our commitment to empower minds and invest in the growth and development of young talents in our field. We are confident that the experiences of these master’s students in Berlin will inspire new ideas, nurture collaborative thinking, and further advance the boundaries of cognitive neuroscience.
