The BCCN Freiburg seeks and encourages cooperations and contacts with other centers for Computational Neuroscience, with the aim to increase the possibilities for international exchanges of our PhD-students, Postdocs and Faculty. To encourage these collaborations, we established cooperations with a number of leading Centers for Computational Neuroscience throughout the world.

For details about the procedure, if you would like to start a collaboration with one of our faculty members, or if you have further suggestions, please contact us at: contact@bcf.uni-freiburg.de or refer to our internal webpages.

Within Germany, we are a member of the National Network for Computational Neuroscience (www.nncn.de) where we cooperate with the other Bernstein Centers for Computational Neuroscience. In Freiburg, we are actively involved in the Spemann Graduate School of Biology and Medicine (SGBM) (view image film [en] [de]).

At an international level, the BCCN Freiburg (www.bcf.uni-freiburg.de/bccn) has established cooperation agreements with:

- the Graduate Program in Computational Neurobiology at UCSD - the University of California, San Diego, USA (http://neurograd.ucsd.edu) ucsd_logo.jpg
- the Interdisciplinary Center for Neural Computation (ICNC) at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel (http://icnc.huji.ac.il) icnc_logo.gif
- the Gonda Brain Research Center (Gonda BRC) at Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel (www.biu.ac.il/interdis/gondabrain/index_eng.html) gondalogo.gif
- the Neuroinformatics Doctoral Training Centre (NDTC) at the University of Edinburgh, UK (www.anc.inf.ed.ac.uk/neuroinformatics) edinb.gif

- the Interdisciplinary Program in Neurophysiology (IPN), Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, and Network Biology Research Laboratories, Technion, Haifa, Israel

- the Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit at University College London (UCL), UK (www.gatsby.ucl.ac.uk) ucl0001.gif
- the Riken Brain Science Institute in Wako City, Japan
- the Computational Biology Group (CBG), Department of Mathematical Sciences and Technology, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, Ås, Norway (http://bebi.umb.no/) cbg-100.png

Similar agreements are in the process of being established with further Centers. These agreements support the exchange of PhD students, Postdocs and Faculty of the two centers, for either short-term visits up to 3 months or long-term collaborations, as well as joint scientific meetings. The costs of these activities are shared between the centers involved.
