European Neuroscience and Society Network
European Neuroscience and Society Network (ENSN)
Welcome to the European Neuroscience and Society Network, the leading European network for interdisciplinary discussions of the social implications of the neurosciences.
This network was originally funded by the European Science Foundation and was convened by BIOS researchers at LSE/KCL. The ENSN was established to serve as a multidisciplinary forum for timely engagement with the social, political and economic implications of developments in the neurosciences, a field that has experienced unprecedented advances in the last twenty years.
A series of workshops and conferences, was held in both Europe and North America, bringing together life scientists and social scientists, leading to the publication of annual volumes in international journals.
The ENSN was directed by a Steering Committee consisting of representatives from Austria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Switzerland and the UK. Chair of the ENSN was Professor Nikolas Rose.
The European Science Foundation| promotes high quality science at a European level. It acts as a catalyst for the development of science by bringing together leading scientists and funding agencies to debate, plan and implement pan-European initiatives.
