The prize is awarded as an important part of the aim of the Foundation: ‘to boost interest in brain research and its results, to stimulate and reward outstanding brain research and to stimulate Danish research through an expanded interplay with other European brain research, and thus to improve the scientific basis for progress in the prevention, diagnostics and treatment of diseases and disorders of the brain and nervous system’.
