Cycle 1 of the Cognitive Neuroscience kNowledge Exchange for Clinical Translation (CONNECT) initiative was the first in a three-year effort to do cognitive neuroscience differently.
This first session brought interdisciplinary participants together to work on creative solutions to the question: “How might we make cognitive neuroscience research more applicable to the real world?”
The program consisted of:
- Professionally facilitated ‘design thinking’ sessions;
- Interdisciplinary collaboration among individuals with complementary expertise;
- Support for the development of innovative solutions with the potential to improve the way cognitive neuroscience is conducted—to make it more useful, applicable and generalizable; and
- Funding for selected projects from a total envelope available of $850,000 (to be allocated across six planned cycles).
