The ECN member institutions promote cutting-edge neuroscientific research across a wide range of different disciplines and approaches. The ECN provides the umbrella structure that specifically fosters interdisciplinary, collaborative research by facilitating cooperation between these institutions, and by promoting interaction on all levels.

With around 100 internationally recognized research groups, the ECN offers outstanding interdisciplinary training and research opportunities for national and international scientists, with research spanning from synapse to behavior, molecule to disease, and brain to mind.

The ECN will finance a PhD research project for 4 years. All selected PhD students have the opportunity to undertake small rotation projects (i.e. two month each) in different labs for a period of six months before the start of the research work to make an informed choice about the final PhD lab.
