In order to improve networking and the exchange of knowledge between scientists from different institutions, Synapsis organizes events for researchers. The intention is to support the establishment of new research collaborations and to make optimal use of synergies.

Synapsis Forum 2019

25 - 26 November 2019 at Hotel Schloss Gerzensee, Gerzensee near Bern

For the second time, Synapsis Foundation is organizing the “Synapsis Forum”. Researchers supported by the Foundation are invited for 1.5 days of scientific exchange and networking.


Synapsis Foundation invites all researchers who receive funding from the Foundation as well as one additional project member of the supported lab.


During the event (25 November 2019, 13:00 until 26 November 2019, 17:00), selected researchers will give talks and provide insights into their research projects supported by Synapsis Foundation. To learn more about research at the Swiss Memory Clinics (SMC) we invited Dr Ansgar Felbecker, President of the SMC. Prof. Philip Scheltens, member of the Scientific Advisory Board since 2019, will  give a keynote lecture. During the poster session in the evening of the first day, the participants are invited to present their work. A networking session on the second day will offer many opportunities to meet other scientists informally.
