SYMPOSIUM ON NEUROSCIENCE AND EDUCATION: FROM RESEARCH TO PRACTICE, TO BE HELD ON 19 DECEMBER IN GENEVA

18 December 2017

GENEVA – On December 19th, 2017, the International Bureau of Education (IBE-UNESCO), in collaboration with the International Brain Research Organization (IBRO), will organize a symposium on “Neuroscience and education: From research to practice”.

Across the world, governments are increasingly interested in developing a 21st century education system that is supported by concrete evidence on how we learn. This is prompting a new and exciting dialogue between the fields of neuroscience and education.

Over the past three months, three prominent neuroscientists have been working collaboratively with the IBE staff to explore how current issues and needs in education can drive new directions for neuroscience research, and how neuroscience can feed into educational thinking, policy and practice.

The event is scheduled on 19 December 2017, from 10:00 – 12:00, at the IBE (15 route des Morillons, Salle Braslavsky, 1st floor). The program is available at:

The event is open to the public but advanced registration is recommended.
