About EBBS

The European Brain and Behaviour Society (EBBS) promotes the interaction and exchange of information between scientists in Europe with a common interest in the brain mechanisms of behaviour.

Established in 1968, EBBS is the oldest society in the world focused on the interrelationship between brain and behaviour and is a founding member of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS). From its inception, it has existed to encourage lively and convivial exchange of ideas between investigators at all career stages and across disciplines interested in how the careful study of behaviour is central to our understanding of brain function. To this end, the Society organises a biennial General Meeting that is held (in odd years) alternately with the biennial meeting of FENS (in even years), as well as sponsoring young investigator travel awards and international lecturers.

As a strong and dynamic Society, EBBS is committed to maintain high standards in the field of behavioural neuroscience and, more generally, to shape a positive future for neuroscience and wider society.
