IBRO + Global Advocacy: application calls will open in April 2018

IBRO and its Global Advocacy Initiative partners awarded the third round of Global Advocacy Seed Grants in the Asia Pacific, Africa and Latin America regions in 2017. The supported events and activities address the specific needs of neuroscience advocacy in the country where they are to be held. They include public lectures, brain awareness fairs, conferences, educational symposia for policymakers, educators and the public and videos or multimedia products to increase awareness. The fourth round of application calls will open in April 2018 for advocacy and outreach activities in 2019.

IBRO would like to thank its Global Advocacy Initiative partners for their continued commitment and support of this initiative - Society for Neuroscience (SfN), Federation for European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), International Society for Neurochemistry (ISN), Japan Neuroscience Society (JNS), Australasian Neuroscience Society, and the Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives. Without such strong collaborative relationships, global advocacy for neuroscience would not be possible.
