Giving early-career neuroscientists a voice.

Brought to you by Brainbox Ltd, the Brainbox Initiative works closely with world-leading researchers to help support, develop, and promote the work of early-career neuroscientists.

Our range of hands-on workshops; annual conference; symposia demonstrations; and prizes and awards have reached over 1,100 early-career researchers from more than 200 universities and colleges worldwide and have already helped to inspire some groundbreaking neuroscience research studies.

Open Science Conference

Join us on August 4, 2020 for a virtual symposium, organised in collaboration with the British Neuroscience Association, in which we bring together field-leading experts to explore and examine open science practices in non-invasive brain stimulation research.

Brainbox Initiative Webinars

In response to the situation that we all find ourselves in as a result of COVID-19, and as part of our ongoing commitment to stimulating neuroscience discussion, we’re delighted to invite you to join us for our new series of free-of-charge, interactive webinars that we hope will provide an avenue for remote learning, networking, and conversation throughout these difficult times. Please register now to join us for these webinars.

Brainbox Initiative Conference

The Brainbox Initiative Conference for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation and Brain Imaging will be returning to the Wellcome Collection in London from September 24-25, 2020.

Bringing together groundbreaking research from early-career neuroscientists and incredible stories and knowledge from world-leading keynote speakers, the Brainbox Initiative Conference gives researchers at all stages of their careers the opportunity to meet, network, and forge exciting new avenues for collaboration.

Early-bird registration is now available for the Brainbox Initiative Conference 2020.

Brainbox Initiative Workshops

The Brainbox Initiative’s range of hands-on workshops are run in collaboration with world-leading neuroscientists from some of the best universities around the world.

Combining in-depth talks with extensive practical sessions making using state-of-the-art neuroscience technology, our workshops are designed specifically to provide delegates with a strong and deep understanding of the non-invasive brain stimulation, imaging, and navigation techniques required to carry out reliable, robust studies.

We host a wide range of events at institutions and venues around the world that cover all aspects of non-invasive brain stimulation: from the fundamentals of these techniques, all the way up to advanced, multimodal workshops that are designed to challenge and fortify your existing knowledge.

Young Investigator Award

The Brainbox Initiative’s Young Investigator Award was set up with the goal of stimulating and rewarding the very best, novel neuroscience research being carried out by early-career academics.

Providing opportunities to share and promote your research at the Brainbox Initiative Conference, and rewarding your ongoing commitment to producing cutting-edge research with a cash prize and the opportunity to work alongside us as one of our Brainbox Ambassadors, we encourage all early-career researchers with published research in non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging techniques to apply.

The 2020 call for entries is now closed.

Research Challenge

Our annual Research Challenge award provides a fantastic opportunity for early-career researchers to gain invaluable research experience with a generous loan of state-of-the-art equipment and expert technical support and training to help kick-start the most promising neuroscience careers.

Searching specifically for the most ambitious integrated brain stimulation and brain imaging studies, the Research Challenge will enable one lucky early-career researcher to complete a proposed proof of principle study, boost and promote their academic CV and research profile, learn new research and non-invasive brain stimulation skills, and forge valuable new networking connections.
