The Paris Brain Institute has endorsed the ALBA declaration on equity and inclusion, in its effort for more equity and inclusion in neurosciences.

By signing this declaration, the Paris Brain Institute is now part of network of more than 150 scientific organisations committed to more diversity and equity in the scientific world.

The ALBA Network gathers neuroscientists from all over the world with the objective to develop fair and inclusive scientific communities. It focuses on two obstacles to equity and inclusion: implicit biases and discriminatory workplace culture.

It is very important for the Paris Brain Institute to engage with the ALBA network for more diversity, inclusion and equity in science. Over the last years, together with our gender equity committee, we strengthen our commitment to these issues and hope to go even further by joining this network.”

Prof Alexis Brice, Executive director of the Paris Brain Institute.


The XX initiative, a grass root movement comprising all scientific personnel categories of the Paris Brain Institute, enabled the creation of the Gender equity committee. As we experienced locally, a collective coordination is necessary to move things forward. We are therefore very enthusiastic that the Institute, by joining the ALBA network, shares our equity ambitions.”
