Report Funding by RUB Research School PLUS enabled me to visit the FENS conference in Milan 2014. FENS is the federation of all European neuroscience societies. Its activities are of interest for neuroscientists all over the world. Therefore I submitted an abstract related to my proposed project. Since the abstract was accepted as a poster presentation at the FENS meeting in Milan, I had the opportunity to present my results to experts in the field of neuroscience. There, I discussed my approach with people from different backgrounds and different positions. I received very positive feedback for my work and established contacts with experts in my field of research. As I was able to use the features implemented during my stay in Milan immediately to produce results and communicate these to a high-level scientific audience I consider my time at the FENS meeting was highly valuable for my PhD project.
