The Evens Science Prize supports scientists by acknowledging their importance in exploring and finding out answers to the major challenges in our societies.
Since its establishment in 2007, the Evens Foundation has been focusing on Cognitive Neuroscience, that furthers understanding of our behavior and mental state, whether individual or collective, with special emphasis on research that has ethical and societal impact.
Neuroscience encompasses the various scientific disciplines dealing with the structure, development and function of the nervous system, as well as the study of its chemistry and its impact on human behaviour. The Cognitive Neuroscience applies an interdisciplinary perspective that involves fields as varied as mathematics, linguistics, computer science, psychology, philosophy of mind, and anthropology.
