Bernstein Coordination Site

Bernstein Coordination Site


The Bernstein Coordination Site is the national and international representation of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience. BCOS serves as a connecting link to funding agencies, industrial partners and the political institutions. It supports scientists in their joint activities and networking. Central public relations and outreach foster the network’s corporate identity and ensures that the high visibility of the Bernstein Network is maintained. BCOS is responsible for organizing the annual Bernstein Conference, one of the most reputable international conferences in the field of computational neuroscience.

Since 2015 BCOS is a branch office of the Forschungszentrum Jülich located at the premises of the Bernstein Center Freiburg at the University of Freiburg.
