Applications open for IBE-UNESCO/IBRO Science of Learning Fellowships. Deadline extended: 22 May



The International Brain Research Organization (IBRO) has continued its partnership with the International Bureau of Education (IBE-UNESCO) to offer a set of three new fellowships in 2017,  the IBE-UNESCO/IBRO Science of Learning Fellowships. This is part of the IBRO Science of Learning Initiative that aims to support and translate key neuroscience research on learning and the brain to educators, policymakers and governments.

Applications will be considered from senior scientists and mid-career scientists with at least 10 years of experience practicing in the field of neuroscience, preferably in the science of learning. Researchers from all regions of the world will be considered.

The fellows will be hosted at IBE–UNESCO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, so they can learn about policymaking in an international context, as well as receive support with policy vocabulary and messages.

Watch interviews with the 2016 Fellows: Brain Research, Teaching and Learning in the 21st Century.

Location: IBE-UNESCO headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

Deadline to apply: 22 May 2017
