The European Brain Council (EBC), Brain Capital Alliance and Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy will host a two-day, high-level side event at the 79th United Nations General Assembly, in collaboration with partner organizations, in the framework of the Science Summit at the 79th United Nations General Assembly (UNGA79) in New York City during the high-level week.

In line with the Science Summit’s core focus of examining policy, regulatory and financial environments needed to implement and sustain the science mechanisms required to support global scientific collaborations, the two-day event will highlight existing partnerships and the potential of extended global collaboration in neuroscience, research and therapeutics and neurological and mental brain disorder rehabilitation and remedies.

To work towards explicit and tangible next steps in solidifying global efforts in brain health, EBC proposes a two-day event, which will showcase the importance and urgency of prioritising brain health across all policies at the global level and build on the Call to Action launched during last year’s event. Addressing the immense global burden of brain disorders means investing in research and innovation in the brain health space to power our understanding of the brain, stay ahead in the quest to find treatment and cures and work to prevent any further increase in the prevalence of these conditions. Furthermore, at the socio-economic level, policies and investments to boost brain power can increase productivity, stimulate greater creativity and economic dynamism, afford social cohesion, and create a more resilient, adaptable, and sustainability-engaged populace.
