IBRO World Congress Committee


In collaboration with societies of neuroscience throughout the world, IBRO promotes international congresses and regional meetings on a recurring basis. Their overall aim is to promote neuroscience, increase communication and facilitate collaboration between investigators throughout the world.

A key objective of IBRO-sponsored congresses is to advance neuroscience in regions that need assistance. This can be achieved by facilitating the participation of scientists from less well-funded regions at congresses and meetings held in parts of the world with greater scientific strength and resources. To further facilitate this role, the congress/meeting venues alternate from region to region.
