09:00 - 10:30 Special Interest Event
Animal research outreach by EARA
EARA, with the support of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and Society for Neuroscience, are holding a series of openness events with the aim of promoting the benefits of open communication about animal research. The discussions would be aimed at researchers and staff who are either directly or indirectly involved in animal research and are currently hesitant to speak out in the media, or participate in public engagement activities. This will not be a debate about the ethics of animal experimentation. Speakers: Kirk Leech, Executive Director, EARA, UK; Marta Kuczeriska, Mossakowski Medical Research Institute, PL; Krzysztof Wasowicz, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, PL; Paweł Boguszewski, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, PL.

Summary: On the occasion of the FRM2021, the coordinators and directors of the Network of European Neuroscience Schools (NENS)* and the members of the FENS Committee for Higher Education and Training (CHET) will meet, discuss and jointly explore items such as the current and possible initiatives FENS could launch to support neuroscience schools, training challenges, needs and opportunities the schools are facing, resources and tools designed to facilitate online cooperation and interaction among schools. The meeting is open to and welcomes representatives of all neuroscience schools in Europe, regardless of their NENS membership. To attend the meeting as a representative of a neuroscience school, please register here. Registration deadline: 16 August 2021,

14:00 - 16:00 Special Interest Event

Science communication workshop at the FRM 2021

Participants to this workshop will receive hands-on mentoring on a science communication project they would like to develop in the following three categories: online science communication, science communication for younger audiences and animal research for non-scientific audiences. At the end of the workshop, six competitors will be selected to take part in the "Pitch your science communication project" competition organised on 25 August 2021 and maybe win a grant to fund their project! Participation in this workshop is limited to selected participants. 
16:00 - 18:00
