NeNa (Neurowissenschaftliche Nachwuchskonferenz) is an annual event organized by doctoral students from neuroscience research groups in Tübingen. NeNa serves as an opportunity for young neuroscientists to meet and discuss their research projects with peers. Attendees are invited from all faculties and departments at which neuroscience is a subdiscipline, including molecular biology, biology, chemistry, physics, psychology, medicine and computer science. Thereby, exchange between those fields of research is fostered and participants get the opportunity to discuss their project with scientists with different backgrounds.

The Max Planck Society for the Advancement of Science is an independent, non-profit research organization. It was founded in 1948 and is the successor organization to the Kaiser Wilhelm Society, which was established in 1911. The primary goal of the Max Planck Society is to promote basic research at its own institutes. It is not a government institution although it is funded to a large extent by the federal and state governments. Instead, it is a registered association and has its registered seat in Berlin. The Administrative Headquarters and office of the President are located in Munich.
The PhDnet portal serves as a platform for exchange among doctoral students at Max-Planck-Institutes. Regardless of their particular fields of research, all doctoral students strive to maximize their achievements during the doctoral period, to avail of and contribute to the scientific profile of their respective MPIs and to effectively plan their career.
The portal 'Research in Germany' is the central information platform of an initiative by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to promote innovation and research in Germany. The portal provides an overview of the German research landscape and funding system.
The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) is the German national agency for the support of international academic cooperation. The service offers programs and funding for students, faculty, researchers and others with higher education. Offices of the DAAD can be found in many countries worldwide.
