Crowdfunding campaign for the Transylvanian Neuroscience Summer School

The philosophy of the school is learning by doing and while doing so, openly sharing ideas and expertise. TENSS is unique in that most of the experimental (hardware and software) tools are assembled from scratch, with minimal costs leading to a deeply personal transfer of information from first principles. Your support is vital for the continuity of TENSS itself, and for accomplishing one if its main goals to support neuroscience research in Eastern Europe and Romania, to raise community awareness and support in the matter. Donate on Indiegogo.
