Recognizing outstanding achievements
The Bernstein Network regularly honors outstanding achievements in the field of computational neuroscience with two scientific awards. They are presented in the course of the Bernstein Conference and address established scientists on the one hand and outstanding young scientists from all over the world on the other.
Valentin Braitenberg Award
The Valentin Braitenberg Award recognizes the impact of its recipient’s research on neuroscience and is therefore given to established researchers. The prize is awarded only upon nomination. The Valentin Braitenberg Award is financially supported by the “Autonome Provinz Bozen Südtirol”, the home of its namesake.
Brains for Brains Award
The Brains for Brains Award was established by the network in 2010 to support outstanding young scientists. As a travel grant, it enables the respective awardees from all over the world to get to know the German research possibilities in computational neuroscience.
