Institut Européen de Neurosciences Théoriques

L’Institut Européen de Neurosciences Théoriques (EITN) est dirigé par Alain Destexhe dans le cadre de l’Human Brain Project afin d’attirer des chercheurs de haut niveau et de favoriser l’interdisciplinarité de la recherche en neurosciences. Il est associé au Nœud Français des Facilités Internationales de Coordination en Neuroinformatique (INCF), dirigé par Andrew Davison.

Ces deux antennes internationales sont rattachées et administrées par l’ICN.

Activités

By co-organizing monthly international workshops on topics involving Theoretical Neuroscience, the EITN aims at working as an incubator of ideas and foster interactions between theoreticians and experimentalists. The smaller scale attendance of these events, of about 30 to 50 participants, facilitates discussions and exchanges.

The EITN also acts as a learning structure by organizing a yearly Spring School in Computational Neuroscience targeted at PhD students and young post-doctoral researchers. Each year, this 10-days theoretical and computational neuroscience training gathers a group of 20 selected attendees with faculty and tutors to realize a concrete modelling project.

Finally, the EITN is open to research visitors for a stay up to three months. Thanks to its proximity to experimental laboratories within the Neuro-PSI, visiting EITN is a great opportunity for both theoreticians and experimentalists to interact together.

Workshops going online

In response to the COVID-19 health crisis, activities of EITN are going online. Until it is safe to meet again, workshops will be virtual.
