The NeuroLeadership Award for Breakthrough Research (NABR, previously the NeuroLeadership Application of Science Award or NASA) recognizes scientists who conduct innovative, thorough, and insightful research that contributes to bridging the gap between science and application.
The goal of this award is to
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 ask 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 are asked to consider how their research could apply to one or more of these areas.
We also require a 2-5 minute video of the researcher describing their work.
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.
