TWINNIBS project organizes a symposium on Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and gender equality and diversity issues in science: Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Beyond

This half day event will gather 5 speakers from the international community in a hybrid in - person / online event to present their latest contributions to NIBS field and discuss gender equality and diversity issues in science focusing on neuroscience.

There will be short scientific talks by female NIBS scientists, a contribution from the project "Women in Neuroscience Repository" as well as discussion on raising gender equality and the diversity in the field.

What: NIBS and Beyond
Who: Armita Faghani (DRCMR, Denmark), Dunja Paunović and Jovana Bjekić (Institute for Medical Research, Serbia), Arianna Brancaccio (CIMeC, Italy), Marta Bortoletto (IRCCS S. Giovanni di Dio, Italy); Doris Pischedda (UniPavia, Italy and Women in Neuroscience Repository).
