Founding Partners

The ALBA Network was created as the unified powerful voice of Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the International Brain Research Organisation (IBRO) and the Society for Neuroscience (SfN). A representative from each founding partner is on the ALBA Council of Partners and supports the ALBA Board of Directors in an advisory capacity. The ALBA Network is proudly hosted and administered by FENS.
