$1 Million Global B.R.A.I.N. Prize Announced by Israel Brain TechnologiesSep. 12, 2012
Israel Brain Technologies (IBT), a new initiative inspired by the vision of Israeli President Shimon Peres, is announcing the launch of its $1m global B.R.A.I.N. Prize (Breakthrough Research And Innovation in Neurotechnology). The launch will be followed by a “fireside chat” by President Peres. The announcement took place during the HTIA 2012 Conference in Jerusalem.
The million-dollar prize will go to an individual or team throughout the world who can demonstrate an extraordinary breakthrough in brain technology with global implications.
The B.R.A.I.N. Prize aims at engaging the best and brightest minds across the planet to spark a new wave of neurotechnology innovation. The prize will also showcase Israel as an international hub for innovation in brain research and technology, helping position Israel as not only the “Startup Nation,” but also the “Brain Nation.”
Prize winners could, for example, help treat neurological disorders like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, depression, PTSD or even sports-related brain trauma. Or they could create the next cutting-edge brain-inspired technology that will alter our day-to-day lives.
The international judging committee will be composed of distinguished leaders in neuroscience, technology and business.
