Special Interest Groups

ESCAN fosters Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that are tasked to bring together our members working in areas of common interest. Our SIGs can be made up of researchers, scholars, or other professionals with relevant expertise brought together by the interest in a common topic, offering knowledge exchange, various activities and collaboration opportunities. The SIGs have their own governance structure, mission and activities, ultimately serving as a forum for more specialised discussion and exchanging ideas under the overall scope of ESCAN. You need to be a member of ESCAN to form part of a ESCAN SIG.  You can find out more about each of the SIGs below. 


If you are interested in setting up a Special Interest Group, please contact us here outlining your reasons, the mission, likely governance and membership and activities: escan@escaneurosci.eu
