About the Alliance

Following on from the success of the OECD Neuroscience-inspired Policy Initiative, we have launched an expanded, multi-national and multi-organisational programme. The programme focuses on neuroscience-inspired investment and public policy innovation as the two most powerful levers for change. It brings together radically diverse stakeholders spanning fields from brain science to policy, economics and finance.

Brain Capital is a new asset class which recognises brain skills and brain health as indispensable drivers of the brain economy.  The Alliance brings together world-class contributors from various backgrounds to explore approaches to building Brain Capital at societal scale.
