Briefings & Forums

FABBS, with support from related organizations and member societies, hosts briefings and forums targeted to congressional and federal funding agengy (e.g., NIH, NSF, IES, DOD, etc.) staff. Speakers at these events address topics relevant to current or future legislation so that decision-makers may consider available research from the sciences of mind, brain, and behavior before finalizing legislative or programatic decisions.

Often Members of Congress or federal agency leaders are present to offer their comments on the issue(s) at hand, and an interchange of persepctives and knowledge frequently occurs from which all involved can benefit.
