Session Description
Engagement can mean different things to different people, taking on completely different formats depending on national or regional contexts and cultural norms. Actions may aim to combat societal stigma around mental health and neurological disease, involve public outreach, enable capacity building and even target policymakers via coordinated campaigns.Join this event to learn more from researchers who have, in very different ways, found ways to elevate global neuroscience, and create long-standing links within and beyond their scientific communities. IBRO President, Tracy L. Bale, will be joined by several Global Engagement Initiative* awardees for a panel discussion about impactful change around the world:- Gwladys Temkou Ngoupaye, University of Dschang, Cameroon - María Castelló, Instituto de Investigaciones Biológicas Clemente Estable, Uruguay- Battuvshin Lkhagvasuren, Mongolian National University of Medical Sciences, Mongolia (tbc) The discussion will be followed by a light lunch, against the backdrop of an exhibition of international engagement projects. *The Global Engagement Initiative aims to increase awareness and build support for brain research, informed policymaking, training and education through activities and events that are culturally sensitive and regionally relevant. Through this joint program, IBRO works in close collaboration with the Society for Neuroscience, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies, The Dana Foundation, the Japan Neuroscience Society, the Australasian Neuroscience Society and others to keep developing effective and impactful strategies that inform and inspire people about neuroscience.
