The Brain Conferences: Computational Neuroscience of Prediction

Organised by FENS ( (the major neuroscience association in Europe) in collaboration with The Brain Prize, the Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe.

Prediction is a pervasive requirement for organisms to be able to prepare for and adapt to complex, changing and challenging environments. Prediction is affected by cognitive and computational factors including limited capacity attention, risk and uncertainty, and affective biases; and it is the topic of a wealth of neuroscience experiments ranging from behavioural studies to powerful new approaches such as optogenetics. In this Brain Conference, we will examine the problems and prospects for prediction from the combined perspectives of experimental and theoretical neuroscience, psychology and economics.

JPI HDHL will organise a conference on “Diet as leverage point towards a healthy and sustainable food system” in Brussels. During this conference, a workshop - JPI HDHL, FIT4FOOD2030 will be organised, from 14.00-16.15. This workshop will focus on the role that research funders can play in increasing the impact of the research that they fund. Applying a holistic or systems approach and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) are ways to make the R&I system more effective, particularly when dealing with complex challenges like transition of the food system. The policy-science interface and the role of funding instruments will also be discussed. Experts from the Fit4Food2030 consortium, a project in which innovative R&I approaches are key, will present during this workshop and guide interactive exchange. It is primarily aimed at public funding agencies, foundations and private funders, but open to everyone.
