Without sponsors, we would never be able to organise the Synapsium conference. So, we would like to thank them for their support! Each of our sponsors plays an important role in enabling and improving education, research in cognitive neuroscience, or its applications in the medical industry.

On this page, you will find short profiles about each of our sponsors.

Dondrite is a study association involved in promoting the interaction between students and employees of the Donders Institute in Nijmegen.

They do so by organizing activities that encourage socializing among students, making it easier for them to get to know each other and discover the city of Nijmegen. Dondrite also organises different study-related activities that range from lectures by guest speakers to discussion groups about hot topics; and further aim at improving the study environment by organizing study groups that encourage a more interactive and cooperative approach and favor a deeper understanding of the different courses.


About our teaching
As a student of the Faculty of Social Sciences, you will learn about human behaviour, artificial intelligence, education and child-rearing, communication, society and culture. During your study you encounter the latest developments in your field and develop research skills that will later enable you to set to work yourself.

About our research
Our researchers participate in research projects that relate to social and individual issues. Our social scientific research extends over a broad field, from the fundamental basis of human behaviour to research focusing on the treatment of behavioural and mental disorders, or intervention programmes in health and education. There are also analyses and projected solutions for socio-cultural issues.

Nijmegen is the oldest city of the Netherlands full of important historical locations. And it’s not just a rich cultural history that Nijmegen has to offer. A large number of students, numerous events and festivals, unique hot spots and cozy restaurants all add up to an unprecedented liveliness in our city. The oldest city in the Netherlands is bursting with energy! Or as we put it: Old City, Young Vibe.
Nijmegen is a city that also presents itself as a global top player in solving social issues and problems. With its significant position in the Health & High Tech sector, Nijmegen belongs to the international top when it comes to improving the quality of life, healthcare and the development of high-quality technology for various social applications.

Dedicated to the research and understanding of the human brain and nervous system since 1997. Our focus on positively impacting neuroscience made Brain Products the worldwide leading manufacturer of hard and software solutions for neurophysiological research. Our solutions cover a wide range of fields of ERP, BCI, EEG/fMRI, EEG/TMS, MoBI (Mobile Brain/Body Imaging), as well as infant, sports, sleep, behavioural sciences and similar disciplines. Since, for us, a solution is only a solution if it covers all the researcher’s needs, we also offer a variety of psychophysiological sensors, easily integrated stimulation and analysis software, alongside free technical and scientific support.
