Imaginator Academy and EMEA are among the core members of the Brain Capital Alliance — a multi-national program focused on neuroscience-inspired investment and public policy innovation as two powerful levers for change. Brain capital is a productive and complex capital stock that accumulates over the lifecycle. The brain capital framework has recently been cited in public and private reports, including from the United Nations Development Programme’s Human Development Report, the World Health Organisation’s Brain Health Position Statement, and new analyses from PwC and Lundbeck.
Courageous Imagination is the art and science of stories that shape the future. The First Annual Imaginator Summit brought together policymakers, innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, creatives, and futurists with the aim to co-create a culture algorithm capable of sensing where the next cultural and economic value will appear.
