CIMeC Colloquium Series
The CIMeC Colloquia Series is an annual set of invited talks given by leading researchers in the mind/brain sciences, both from Italy and abroad, aimed principally at our PhD Students. Given the multi-disciplinary backgrounds of the CIMeC students and researchers, the Colloquia are aimed at a general scientific level rather than at a more specialized audience.
The 2022/23 Colloquium Committee: Chiara Pepe, Alexander Eperon, Davide Cortinovis
Academic Councilor: Dr. Moritz Wurm
Colloquia usually takes place on the first Thursday of each month except August.
