The Pacific Northwest is announcing plans to develop a vibrant neurotechnology regional cluster:
The Pacific Northwest Neuroscience Neighborhood (University of Washington, the Allen Institute for Neuroscience, Oregon Health & Science University, and 50 companies based in Oregon and Washington) will pilot a BRAIN Initiative ‘regional cluster’ in the spring and summer of 2015 to bring together the research, clinical, industry, academic, education, public, and advocacy communities to highlight and build on the BRAIN Initiative themes and goals in the Pacific Northwest. By aligning a series of neuroscience events and conferences, this “BRAIN BRIDGE” aims to be an innovative model for engaging multiple stakeholder groups in the Pacific Northwest to create opportunities for more effective advocacy, targeted policy development, improved research investment, stimulated entrepreneurial enterprise, new educational practice dissemination, and public engagement. The BRAIN BRIDGE will also establish a strategy for developing a vibrant neurotechnology cluster that will connect scientists, technology developers, and funders.
