The University of Zagreb (UNIZG), the flagship educational institution in Croatia, will provide the compulsory summer school under the joint auspices of its School of Medicine (UZSM) and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER).
UZSM, founded in 1917, is the oldest, most respected, and largest institution offering medical studies in Croatia. The School collaborates on four European projects within the EU Horizon program and has received grants for two EU Centres of Excellence – the Centre of Excellence for Reproductive and Regenerative Medicine, and the Centre of Excellence for Basic, Clinical, and Translational Neuroscience.
FER is the largest technical faculty and leading educational and research institution in the fields of electrical engineering, information and communication technology, and computing in Croatia. The Faculty, which was one of four faculties formed out of UNIZG’s former College of Engineering in 1956, comprises 12 departments in a variety of fields.

The Department of General Psychology, established in 1919, is devoted to world-class empirical human and animal psychology studies. The scientific activity can be defined as top-notch basic research on human cognitive/emotional functioning, performed by using non-invasive behavioural, electrophysiological, and neuroimaging techniques. Research topics investigated cover virtually all psychological domains. They include life-span perception and psychophysics, learning and memory, attentional processes, emotions, language, numerical cognition, action and movement, both in healthy individuals and in patients with emotional disorders, cognitive and behavioural from a perspective of maintaining wellness and health, prevention, evaluation, and rehabilitation treatment.

Faculty of Science and Vrije University Medical Center, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The Faculty of Science and the Vrije University Medical Center (VUmc) jointly offer a research graduate program explicitly focusing on fundamental, behavioural, and clinical neuroscience research. Students are trained to be the future generations of neuroscientists who employ their expertise beyond the boundaries of their field of research and related research areas, thereby allowing them to advance neuroscientific knowledge that ultimately helps bridge the bench-to-bedside gap.
Faculty of Education and Psychology, University of Jyväskylä, Finland
The University of Jyväskylä (JYU) has a long history of researching and teaching cognitive and behavioural neuroscience and computational and data sciences. Undergraduate degrees within these fields are offered in Psychology, Cognitive Science, Mathematical Information Technology, and Information and Software Engineering. JYU has offered undergraduate studies (minor) in Cognitive Neuroscience since 2014, and in the spring of 2021, a new graduate Brain and Data Science programme was launched, targeting students from multidisciplinary backgrounds.
