November 2013 – Research Networking Committee (RNC)

ESRS Research Networking Committee (RNC)

Members (2012-2014):
Coordinator, Debra J. Skene; vice-coordinator, Walter McNicholas; members, Roberto Amici, Simon Archer, Zoran Dogas, Pierre-Hervé Luppi, Lino Nobili, Renata Riha

The RNC has been working to encourage Networking of Sleep Researchers. On 8th November, all ESRS members received a personalised email request to submit details of their Sleep Research Laboratory to the ESRS Database. We have had a good response to this Call with new Laboratories being uploaded onto the ESRS Database. In addition, those members with Laboratories already registered have been able to use the link to update and edit their Laboratory content.

The annual ESRS Travel Grant scheme for young researchers is open for 2014 (a maximum of 10 projects will be financed, deadline 31st December, 2013). For details and eligibility of the scheme see Grants and financial support

The scheme is designed to promote travel of young researchers to learn a specific technique or methodology in an experienced laboratory belonging to the ESRS Network of Sleep Research Laboratories. A concrete incentive to register your Sleep Research Laboratory details on the ESRS Database!

Seasons Greetings!
