The Coneural – Max Planck Partner Group has been renewed

March 7th, 2012

The partnership between the institute’s Center for Cognitive and Neural Studies (Coneural) and the prestigious Max Plank Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt, Germany, has been extended for another 2 years (2011-2013), after an evaluation of the work performed in the previous 3 years.

The Partner Group establishes a direct link between the lab of Dr. Raul Mureşan from Coneural and the Neurophysiology department led by Prof. Wolf Singer in the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. This collaboration is very important because it connects our labs with top-level international scientists and offers a wide opening towards high-profile science in Europe. The Partner Group at Coneural is the only Max Planck partner group in Romania and among the few in Eastern Europe, being a recognition of the quality of the research performed at Coneural.

At the mid-term evaluation of the Coneural – Max Planck Partner Group, Peter Gruss, the President of the Max Planck Society (Germany), stated in the renewal letter: “It is with great pleasure that I take this opportunity to inform you of the very successful outcome of the mid-term review of your Partner Group. The review report points out the impressive scientific output of the Partner Group during the first three years since its inception. I congratulate you upon this success”.
