To define the next scientific challenges for brain research (in particular in the fields of understanding how the brain works, disease prevention, diagnosis and therapy of brain diseases, and industry-driven research).

The conference is targeted to all interested stakeholders: scientists, laypeople, industry and patient representatives, policymakers and media.
