Brain Deals: Decisive Push to Meet SDGs by 2030
This event will present the novel concept of ‘brain capital’ which puts a premium on brain skills and brain health in the accomplishment of socio-economic objectives. Building brain capital is fundamental for meeting modern societal challenges and driving innovation. The concept has been elaborated by the Neuroscience-inspired Policy Initiative launched by the OECD. Following its success, the Brain Capital Alliance has now been formed to continue this work toward impact. Given their scope, Brain Deals can boost the implementation of several SDGs at the national and global level. The model of the Brain Deal was recently noted in a Rice University Baker Institute for Public Policy Brief here. The event will place particular emphasis on the enabling policy and regulatory framework for brain research.
