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.
