The FENS Conference provides the Host Member with the opportunity to profile and champion the scientific achievements in their own country and region, promote the activities of their Society as well as build and develop scientific international collaboration and relationships.

Interested FENS Members should submit an application through the form below and attach the following information no later than 31 March 2024 at midnight CET:
