Sponsorship and Partnership Opportunities

All over the world, scientists, doctors and scholars are striving to uncover the mysteries of the brain and understand brain health and disease. They are generating discoveries that affect medicine and public life, and these discoveries are giving rise to a host of ethical, legal, social, cultural and policy issues and questions.

The International Neuroethics Society (INS) is a multidisciplinary organization of professionals in brain research, ethics, law, philosophy, anthropology, education and other fields, who are deeply dedicated to addressing the challenges of new discoveries in the brain sciences, and to training the current and future generation of innovators and entrepreneurs in this rapidly evolving landscape.

A task of this magnitude and importance requires the help and support of partners and sponsors. We can only carry out our programs with the help of others who share our vision and commitment to excellence in research and innovation, informed decision-making for health and quality of life, and justice in society for people of all ages and cultures.
