The Federation of Latin American and Caribbean Neurosciences (FALAN) was formed in 2013 with the aim of promoting the study and research of neuroscience, promoting links and exchanges between partners and with national and regional organizations and international related disciplines.

IBRO-LARC directly supports FALAN’s activities such LARC-FALAN symposia and FALAN Travel Grants, and contributes to annual administrative activities. 

IBRO-LARC gives preference to FALAN symposia which include younger scientists and offer training for scientists from countries with limited resources for research and/or teaching, and also awards a number of additional travel grants to support the coordination of the region’s neuroscience activities.

By receiving IBRO’s support, FALAN has committed to ensuring the organization of its activities with the necessary coordination to guarantee inclusion, gender equity, and community representation in any of the activities or programs included in its annual development plan.
