Giving early-career neuroscientists a voice
At the Brainbox Initiative, we work closely with some of the world’s leading neuroscience researchers to provide an ongoing, dynamic programme of events, awards, and hands-on training opportunities that have been specifically created to support and promote the work of early and mid-career neuroscientists.
Since our establishment in 2016, our range of hands-on workshops; the annual Brainbox Initiative Conference; our interactive webinar series; and our range of prizes and awards have allowed us to work alongside thousands of neuroscientists from universities and colleges around the world, and have already helped to inspire and proudly support some truly groundbreaking non-invasive brain stimulation studies by the most promising early and mid-career researchers.
The Brainbox Initiative Conference is moving online for 2021. We’ll be returning on September 21-24 for four days filled with research and talks from early-career researchers working with non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging methods; inspiring keynote sessions with world-leading neuroscientists; online poster exhibitions and live pitches to all conference attendees; the presentation of our annual Research Challenge and Young Investigator Awards and much more.
The Brainbox Initiative range of hands-on non-invasive brain stimulation workshops are run in collaboration with world-leading neuroscientists from leading universities around the world. Our courses combine in-depth talks with extensive practical sessions, and have been created specifically to provide delegates with a strong and deep understanding of the techniques required to carry out reliable, engaging studies in TMS, tES, tFUS, EEG, and neuronavigation.
Launched in 2020, the Brainbox Initiative Webinar Series is a free resource designed to stimulate the ongoing discussion and promotion of the fascinating work being carried out in the field of non-invasive brain stimulation and imaging research. Our webinars are hosted by a global range of guest speakers from academia and industry alike to provide a broad, accessible, and engaging series of talks and discussions that is open to everyone. We will continue to add further webinars to this series over time, so make sure to check back here and on our YouTube channel to ensure that you don’t miss any talks.
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.
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.
See the individual awards pages for application details.
