The ISSF supports a new and vigorous external speakers programme in the Neurohumanities that is managed by a cross-disciplinary seminar organizing committee. These are designed to bring STEM and humanities researches to reflect, discuss and think together, as well as to provide a platform for public engagement.
It further funds workshops and discussion meetings that connect STEM and Humanities.
It also provides seed grants for the development of new interdisciplinary research, particularly in the arts and humanities that connect to neuroscience and brain health.
