Dear colleagues,

we would like to point out that the German Federal Ministry of Education 
and Research (BMBF) has tendered a new funding initiative "National 
Network Computational Neuroscience - Bernstein Focus: Neural basics of 
learning" and encourage you to submit your proposals.

The BMBF has established the "National Network Computational 
Neuroscience" in Germany as a structure for developing a new quality in 
Computational Neuroscience, for networking this research area and for 
promoting its international visibility.
With the new funding initiative "Bernstein Focus: Neural basics of 
learning" within this framework the BMBF aims to support activities for 
the further development and networking of experimental and theoretical 
neuroscientific as well as technological capacities in order to 
investigate the neural basics of learning.
Funding for up to five years is provided for interdisciplinary 
cooperation projects which supply a substantial contribution to the 
investigation of brain algorithms, to the understanding of dynamics and 
plasticity of the neural processes of learning und their technical 

Written project outlines must be submitted to the project management 
organization (PT-DLR) by 30 September 2009 at the latest. In a second 
step, applicants whose project outlines have received a positive 
evaluation will be invited to submit a formal application.
