IBRO Regional Committees


IBRO Regional Committees support IBRO’s missions and help to plan and implement IBRO activities in their local areas. They help identify, develop, and support education and training programs which meet local, national and regional needs, and promote neuroscience in their regions through outreach, mentoring and capacity building.  Their specific mandate is defined in Article XXIII of the IBRO Regulations.

Committee members are nominated and elected by Governing Council members. Their term as a committee member lasts 3 years, with the option of re-election for a second and final 3-year term. Each Committee holds regular virtual meetings throughout the year and usually meets in person at the time of a major regional or international meeting, such as the IBRO World Congress, SONA Conference (Africa), FALAN Congress (Latin America), FAONS Congress/Symposium (Asia/Pacific), SfN meeting (North America) or FENS Forum/Regional Meeting (Europe).
