Unique in Europe, BSN aims to offer the international community a high-level technology platform, allowing the set-up of training in neuroscience research, based on experimental practice. On the strength of this distinctive asset, in July 2014 BSN entered into a partnership with FENS and IBRO – two of the major organizations dedicated to neuroscience research – for the launch of the Cajal Advanced Neuroscience Training Program. The School thus hosted the first two sessions of this program in 2015. Four more will be organised in 2016. The BRAIN LabEx is providing support of €1.7 million for this project. A large part of this funding is earmarked for the purchase of initial equipment and the running of the School of neuroscience. Additional support is guaranteed by IdEx Bordeaux (€100,000 for the first year) and other funding will be sought from the Aquitaine regional Council.
