Announcement of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) [November 20, 2007 - deadline: June 02, 2008]
The BMBF has established four “Bernstein Centres for Computational Neuroscience” ( within the framework of its “National Network for Computational Neuroscience” funding activity. These high-performing centres are the major structural elements of the National Network. This means that a new structure has been created which is necessary for developing a new quality in Computational Neuroscience, for networking this research area and for promoting its international visibility.

The “Bernstein Award” funding activity aims to support research projects in the field of Computational Neuroscience, thus enabling excellent young researchers working in this field to implement innovative project ideas in Computational Neuroscience in the German research environment. This is intended inter alia to promote the academic qualification of these outstanding young researchers. The projects supported under the “Bernstein Award” initiative will become an integral part of the National Network for Computational Neuroscience and give new impetus to scientific activities.
