It is our great pleasure to announce that the next FENS Regional Meeting, FRM2019, will be in Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. The meeting will be jointly organised by the Neuroscience Societies of Serbia, Romania and Turkey.

These three societies come together for the first time with the aim of boosting the development of neuroscience in the entire region by organising a meeting with an exciting programme reflecting the latest discoveries and technological developments.

FENS President Barry Everitt welcomes this choice which strengthens the importance of regional meetings: “It is fundamental for FENS to support these national events, which play a key role in the neuroscience community at the national level. The collaboration of different societies has guaranteed successful and fruitful meetings in the past and I look forward to following the developments in the Serbia-Romania-Turkey collaboration and discovering the excellent scientific programme the organisers will prepare.”

The last FENS regional meeting was held in Pécs, Hungary, 20-23 September 2017 and organised by the Hungarian Neuroscience Society. Its excellent mix of scientific, social and outreach events attracted nearly 900 participants.

FENS Regional Meetings are national or regional scientific meetings organised by FENS member societies with strong FENS support. FRMs are biennial meetings and alternate with the FENS Forums.
