IBRO World Congress


In collaboration with neuroscience societies around the globe, IBRO holds international congresses once every four years to promote the field of neuroscience, increase awareness about neuroscience research and facilitate collaboration between researchers from all over the world. To facilitate the international participation, the Congress venues alternate from region to region.

Every Congress is organized in close collaboration between IBRO leadership and the local organizing committee, with the goal of achieving the science-fostering goals, as well as reducing the risk. Such relation also helps ensure that these events are hold in agreement with IBRO’s mission and core values. The selection of lecturers and scientific symposia is established by an international scientific program committee.

In 2023, the Spanish Neuroscience Society (SENC, Sociedad Española de Neurociencia) will host the 11th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience at the Granada Exhibition and Conference Centre (Palacio de Exposiciones y Congresos de Granada) from 9-13 September 2023.
