The Academy

 

The Brain Prize Academy is a forum for present and previous winners of The Brain Prize established in order to further execute the aims of the Foundation.

Neuroscience Landscape in Denmark

To facilitate the interaction between The Brain Prize Academy (Brain Prize winners) and Danish neuroscientists, the academy members have suggested that they get easy access to an overview of the Danish neuroscience landscape. The Danish Society for Neuroscience has helped generating the initial list of the larger neuroscience groups in Denmark hoping that this will serve as a basis for providing this landscape.

Selection Committee

The Selection Committee shall represent the highest possible level of expertise within the field of brain research including relevant and comprehensive knowledge about the international scientific world.
