CALLING ALL NEUROSCIENTISTS: The BNA would like to know your views!
As the main UK association that represents the interests of neuroscientists in the UK, the BNA works to improve the research environment for scientists working in all fields of neuroscience at labs and intistutions across the country.
Your answers will help us form policies and activities such as representing the views of UK neuroscientists to government agencies and funding bodies; developing specific training opportunities to meet the needs of early career scientists; or filling skills gaps that have been identified in certain research areas.
This anonymous survey is open to all UK neuroscientists (regardless of BNA membership), from PhD students through to established PIs*. The topics cover the following areas (but there is space or you to highlight any additional issues that you feel are important):
The Impact of Exiting the EU
Research Excellence Framework
Translational Research and Impact
The Regulation of Animal Research
We will develop consensus views around these issues and represent them to policy-makers, and use information from the survey to inform our activities.
Our Trustee with responsibility for Research Policy is Professor Narender Ramnani (right). If you would like to write to him about research policy issues directly, please feel free to do so by sending an email to email@example.com.
*If you are a Masters or Undergraduate student and have any views to share, about the above or any other topics, please contact us at the BNA office or via our social media channels.
Although this particular survey is directed at people carrying out their own neuroscience research, we recently ran a different survey for undergraduate and graduate students to find out more about their specific needs, and we are always interested in hearing from any of our members at any time.
