Meeting of the Minds was an initiative in which "European citizens wrestled - in nine languages - with the implications of brain science policy to develop recommendations for the European Parliament". It featured "two pan-European Town Meetings and several consultations in each participating nation" and "pioneered a new deliberation process in Europe".
It was initiated by government, designers & developers, a non-governmental organisation/charity, and researchers, scientists & educators and encouraged people to participate through an online platform and public assembly. Meeting of the Minds was transnational in orientation and concerned with health and science governance.
It was launched in 2005 and lasted for 12 months. 126 people were involved.
