Cognitive Neuroscience Knowledge Exchange for Clinical Translation (CONNECT)

CONNECT is a pioneering project funded through the Discovery Fund Competition 2.

This project aims to enhance collaboration, promote interdisciplinary knowledge exchange and orient cognitive neuroscience research towards clinical applications. Drawing on existing models of design thinking in research, CONNECT supports knowledge exchange, brainstorming and the formation of new interdisciplinary teams. CONNECT is developing, testing and iterating a novel applied research approach in the field of cognitive neuroscience. This approach is both innovative and inclusive, with vast potential for clinical and policy applications. Additionally, CONNECT offers seed funding for the most promising ideas arising from interdisciplinary collaborations.
