About ChildBrain

ChildBrain project is a Horizon2020  Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA)  Innovative Training Network (ITN) – European Training Network  (ETN).

The purpose of the ChildBrain ETN is to train young scientists, i.e. Early Stage Researchers (ESRs), to utilise evidence-based neuroscientific knowledge for helping children, especially those at high risk for dropout due to neurocognitive disorders, to meet future educational and societal demands.

The ChildBrain European Training Network is a joint venture of several scientific and commercial host institutions.

The project is coordinated by Prof. Paavo Leppänen, University of Jyväskylä.
