The Brain Forum was founded by Dr. Walid Juffali, businessman, entrepreneur, scientist and philanthropist, as part of the W Science Initiative.

His vision was to create a platform that would contribute to the progression of brain research and encourage global collaboration and initiatives with the potential to transform lives.

Our first international conference was held in 2013, followed by a second in 2015 with over 1000 participants from 27 different countries. Following this, the conference became an annual event. In 2016, we hosted more than 1400 participants from 31 different countries.
