Connecting European Neuroscience

Global Advocacy Programme

FENS is committed to working with world leading organisations to raise public awareness of the importance of the brain research and to providing solid advice to policy makers and stakeholders on the importance of continuous support for brain research in order to improve health of millions of people around the world.

The Global Advocacy Initiative stakeholder organisations (FENS, IBRO, SfN, DANA),  identify appropriate advocacy tools that lead to best practices, to share experiences and review the problems faced in different regions, as well as to pinpoint ways of better advocating in such cases.

The IBRO Global Advocacy Initiative came out of an earlier collaboration between the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), whose advocacy efforts are mainly focused within North America, and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), which is mobilising its member societies to do advocacy work within European countries. Along with several other national neuroscience societies – including the Japan and the Australian neuroscience societies – SfN and FENS agreed that IBRO should become the worldwide organiser of this initiative in order to ensure local content and relevant programming, due to IBRO’s deep, imbedded knowledge of other regions gained through decades of capacity-building in less developed regions of the world.
