Report The support of the Research School PLUS allowed us to invite three internationally leading scientists to a symposium that we hosted at the RUB. Our guests stayed for several days, a time filled with interesting presentations, brainstorming sessions and stimulating discussions. Following this, we attended the Society for Neuroscience meeting (SfN) in Chicago. There we had the chance to present our research to the neuroscience community and attend high-quality talks, as well as meet our guests again, through which we made new contacts with scientists working on related topics. Looking back, this undertaking has been a great way to take first steps onto the platform of international research.
