The NeuroLeadership Application of Science Award (NASA) recognizes scientists who conduct innovative, thorough, and insightful research that contributes to bridging the gap between science and application.
1) Urge scientists to consider the application of their work for business and leadership
2) Create opportunities for scientists to engage with the business community
3) Encourage deeper relationships between scientists and practitioners
We asked applicants to compose a 250-word summary describing a finding from a recent paper or series of papers (in press acceptable) on which they were an author, outlining the principles on which someone can act. We have a special interest in the areas of making decisions and solving problems, regulating emotions or regulating the self, collaborating, and facilitating change in others or in whole organizations. Applicants considered how their research could apply to one or more of these areas.
The award is accompanied with a $3000 prize to be used at the winner’s discretion. The winner will also be invited to present their work to members of the NeuroLeadership Institute, on a globally available webinar or a conference.
