Welcome

The Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience connects experimental and theoretical scientists. It comprises more than 200 research groups and 450 individual scientists from all over the world who combine experimental neuroscientific approaches with theoretical models and computer simulations.

The Bernstein Network was launched in 2004 through a major funding initiative of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) which aimed at advancing the transfer of theoretical knowledge to clinical and technical applications. The network is named after the German physiologist and biophysicist Julius Bernstein (1839-1917).

AI as a physicist

The development of a new theory is typically associated with the greats of physics. You might think of Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein, for example. Many Nobel Prizes have already been awarded for new theories. Researchers at Forschungszentrum Jülich have now programmed an artificial intelligence that has also mastered this feat. Their AI is able to recognize patterns in complex data sets and to formulate them in a physical theory.

African-German Scientific Exchange in the Field of Neurosciences

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) invites interested researchers from all African countries and Germany to engage in a scientific exchange in the field of neurosciences.

This initiative covers all research questions that are primarily concerned with neurosciences. Subject areas include basic, applied and clinical topics. Research questions concerning neglected tropical infectious diseases in humans and animals as well as their social and behavioural aspects are excluded from the initiative and will not be considered to be within the scope of the call.

The aim of the initiative is for participating researchers to identify joint interests in the area of neurosciences and initiate new collaborative ventures.

Mechanisms and measurement of disease progression in the early phase of neurodegenerative diseases

It is known that the onset of neurodegenerative diseases occurs years before the appearance of the first clinical symptoms. However, our current understanding on the biological, psychological and social mechanisms that determine early disease progression as well as our ability to precisely monitor the course of the disease at pre-symptomatic stages is very limited. Delayed detection of disease progression may be the reason for the multiple failures observed in clinical trials during the past years. In this context, improving our understanding of the crucial biological mechanisms and psychosocial factors determining risk and resilience for neurodegenerative diseases is needed along with an enhanced measurability of disease progression through the establishment of advanced biological and psychosocial markers. Respective advancements may allow a more accurate identification of pre-symptomatic disease stages and a reliable monitoring of disease progression, thereby enabling a better prediction of disease trajectories and paving the way for new therapeutic and preventive approaches.

Förderung von Projekten in der Forschungs- und Innovationszusammenarbeit mit den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft und Zentralasiens

Ziel des Förderaufrufs ist es, die Forschungspartner:innen aus den Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft über gemeinsame Forschungs- und Innovationsprojekte in den europäischen Forschungsraum (ERA) besser einzubinden. Damit soll ein Beitrag dazu geleistet werden, einen gemeinsamen Wissens- und Innovationsraum zwischen der EU und den offiziellen und potenziellen Beitrittskandidat:innen sowie weiteren Ländern der Östlichen Partnerschaft zu schaffen. Dieses Ziel kann durch die Vernetzung und Kooperation mit erfahrenen und innovationsstarken Partnereinrichtungen unterstützt werden.
