Brain briefings

The 8th Congress of the French Neuroscience Society will be held in Montpellier, France on May 22-25, 2007. For the first time, the meeting is organised together with another neuroscience society, the Spanish Neuroscience Society.

Another novelty this year

In addition to the exhibits, the 8th Congress will provide a unique opportunity to scientists, clinical researchers and decision-makers of the biotechnology world to meet and to exchange views on subjects of common interest in the field of neuroscience research.

Space has been provided to biotechnology companies to present their activities and know-how to researchers. A round table is organised on themes such a how to create a company, how to increase its value and on the subject of public-private relationships.
