The ambition and scope of the British Neuroscience Association (BNA) International Festivals of Neuroscience make them unparalleled across the sector.
The Festivals uniquely bring together multiple organisations with an interest in neuroscience at a single, shared event. This creates a novel, multi-organisation forum featuring all areas of fundamental research in neuroscience and psychology, from both academia and the commercial sector, plus clinical expertise in neurology and psychiatry.
BNA Festivals provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, where attendees can exchange ideas connect and develop meaningful relationships among like-minded peers, and interact with industry and community experts from the BNA and its partners.
In addition to being an international science conference, the Festivals also include a whole programme of activities and events that are free and open to the public: 'Bring Your Own Brain' (BYOB). Previous BYOB events have included rap performances on consciousness, lunchtime talks, school sessions, and more.
