To celebrate neuroscientists’ commitment to outreach, the two Neuroscience Outreach Awards 2016 are awarded at the FENS Forum 2016, Europe’s pre-eminent neuroscience meeting, on 4 July in Copenhagen.
The Dana Foundation and the European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB), in collaboration with the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), present two awards for special contributions to the promotion of brain awareness, through continued public outreach efforts for a period of three or more years.
The winner of the 2016 Dana/EDAB Neuroscience Outreach Champion award is Professor Paul Bolam, emeritus Senior Scientist at the MRC Brain Networks Dynamics Unit at the University of Oxford.
The EDABFENS Brain Awareness Week Excellence Award this year goes to the The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, in Israel. Established in 2010, the Center has a comprehensive and innovative research agenda that includes dialogue with the public.
