ISFN Bi-National symposium with British Neuroscience Association – Eilat December 2014
We are pleased to announce that this year ISFN will host the British Neuroscience association (BNA) for a bi-national symposium during our annual meeting in EIlat, in December 2014.
In our two previous meetings we have hosted Australian (2012) and Italian (2013) delegates from the respective neuroscience societies, and found such bi-national meetings to be very successful in stimulating dialogue between the neuroscientists and open up new avenues to establish new scientific partnerships. We are pleased that the BNA has accepted our invitation to co-host a meeting on dementia, being a global priority, and we believe this will be a valuable meeting.
The UK Government's Global Partnership Fund (GPF) has awarded a substantial grant in support of this meeting. The GPF facilitates the work of the Science and Innovation Network, and is funded from the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS). The aim is to promote sustainable strategic partnerships between the UK and international science and innovation communities to enhance business, research and policy.
The conference is in association with, and supported by the British Embassy in Israel and British Council in Israel. We do hope that this year, as in previous ones, the Israel Ministry of Science and Technology will also support the meeting and together we will be able to advance the sharing of knowledge and creating new collaborations with our colleagues from the UK.
In addition to the joint dementia symposium that will be held on Sunday, 7 December, all other symposia, free oral communication and poster sessions ( 7-9 December 2014) are open to BNA participants, and we hope to see many of our colleagues from the UK attending this meeting.
A joint ISFN/BNA scientific committee will prepare the dementia symposium, and a general call for abstract will be advertise in the respective societies websites around mid-June.
