Annual StratNeuro Retreat

The StratNeuro retreat is our annual meeting targeted to our neuroscience community at Karolinska Institutet (KI), Umeå University (UMU) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). Our aim is to cover a broad range of neuroscience topics from the different departments and institutions in the StratNeuro constellation.

The 2023 StratNeuro Retreat will be held at Djurönäset on 29-30 May.

The StratNeuro retreat is the place to be for neuroscientists from Karolinska Institutet (KI), Umeå University (UMU) and Royal Institute of Technology (KTH). 

  • You will attend top talks from local researchers and invited leading neuroscientists, covering research from the molecular level and up to the cognitive and social levels. 
  • You will have a chance to network and find collaborators during our popular poster mingle session. 

This year, StratNeuro will welcome small delegations from all the NeurotechEU partner institutions (European university alliance of which KI is a member).

Free registration will open early March, so stay tuned on this page and on twitter for updates.

The scientific programme will consist of three plenary sessions, a poster session, and two break-out sessions with two parallel mini symposia/workshops in each session. 

The programme covers a broad range of neuroscience topics from the different departments and institutions in the StratNeuro as well as the wider NeuroTechEU “constellation”.

The poster session on the evening of 29 May is a major highlight of the StratNeuro retreat where participants will have the opportunity to network and discuss all the latest exciting work, while enjoying some snacks and drinks.

Several KI Core Facilities and infrastructures serving the Neuroscience community will also be participating at the poster session.
