The Institute for Science, Innovation and Society (InSIS) and the European Neuroscience and Society Network (ENSN) are jointly organising an international conference at Oxford’s Saïd Business School.
About the conference:
The theme of the conference is the rise of the brain and the emergence of the brain industry or ‘neuro markets’. The aim is to explore how, why and in what ways the figure of the brain has come to permeate so many different areas of thinking and practice in academic and commercial life. What are the consequences for academia, business, commerce and policy?
