Programme

15:00-15:10: Introduction of the ALBA Network by Zeljka Krsnik, Chair of the Young IBRO Committee & member of the ALBA Steering Committee

15:10-16:00: Diversity: Regions specific challenges and solutions" - a round-table discussion with speakers from each of the five IBRO regions: 

Facilitator and keynote speaker: Tracy L. Bale, University of Maryland, USA

Africa: Fleur Howells, University of Cape Town, South Africa
Asia/Pacific: Jinju Han, KAIST, Korea
Europe: Anne Beyeler, University of Bordeaux - INSERM, France
Latin America: Amaicha Depino, Young IBRO Committee member, Argentina
US/Canada: Aparna Suvrathan, Young IBRO and Alba Steering Committee member, Canada

The idea is to:

  1. determine region-specific challenges in maintaining diversity and combating bias,
  2. identify solutions that have been implemented or are in the process of being implemented,
  3. enable regions to learn from the success-stories as well as mistakes that others have made so that the community can assist each other to move forward as a global initiative,
  4. provide a forum for participation, with the speakers/chairperson moderating the discussion.

16:00: Casual networking

This event is part of the 10th IBRO World Congress of Neuroscience. More information and registration to the Congress on their website: ibro2019.org
