FLiACT was a European training network of 8 academic partners and 3 companies. The main goal of FLiACT was to train young researchers in the concepts and techniques necessary to study neuroscience, using Drosophila fly as a model organism. In collaborative and personalised research projects, FLiACT fellows sought to elucidate how neural circuit computation controls behaviour and how are they genetically encoded. During the project, FLiACT organised a series of interdisciplinary workshops on neurogenetics, neuroanatomy, neuroimaging, behavioural analysis and transferable skills. Louis Lab together with International and Scientific Affairs (ISA) at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) coordinated FLiACT.
