The International Brain Bee(IBB) is an international neuroscience competition for high school students. Its mission is to help students learn about the brain and its functions, to find out about careers in neuroscience and to dispel misconceptions about brain disorders.

ICM is thrilled to become the official host of the France Brain Bee on April 6, 2019. We will be working closely with the not-for-profit organization, Gifted in France, to involve several French high schools in the national competition.

Jacobo Sitt, ICM Principal Investigator, will be leading the involvement of ICM’s expert researchers who will help select the winning student on the day of the competition and who provide a training internship to help them prepare for the final competition.

The winner of the 2019 France Brain Bee will participate in the International Brain Bee World Championship,  at the September, 2019 IBRO World Congress in Daegu, South Korea.

Founded by Dr. Norbert Myslinski at the University of Maryland in 1999, the international competition now brings together over 50 participating countries. IBB is a non-profit educational organization comprised of partnerships with the International Brain Research Organization(IBRO), the Dana Foundation, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies(FENS), the Society for Neuroscience(SfN) and the American Psychological Association(APA).
