International Brain Initiative: Shaping the future of globally coordinated neuroscience
12.10.2021 @ 15:00 - 17:30
The European Parliament Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) will hold a workshop with the International Brain Initiative on Shaping the future of globally coordinated neuroscience, to take place virtually on 12 October at 15:00-17:30 CET.
Understanding the human brain is one of the most significant challenges of our time. Despite considerable research, neuroscientist still lack an integrative, comprehensive understanding of the human brain. Neuroscience initiatives, such as those funded by the EU and other countries, are undertaking large-scale efforts to tackle this moonshot challenge.
The International Brain Initiative (IBI) has been established to coordinate efforts across existing and emerging national and regional brain initiatives. In this STOA workshop, IBI representatives will describe the approach to shaping the future of international neuroscience collaborations through efforts in neuroethics, data policy, and the dissemination of scientific resources. The initiatives involved in the IBI aim to provide a robust forum for global information sharing and resources for collaborations. The event will be introduced with a talk by the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, Professor Edvard MOSER and moderated by EBC President, Prof. Monica Di Luca.
