Brain Capital Dashboard is the culmination of a two-year research effort from the EMEA team made in collaboration with international experts and innovators across several different fields, from neuroscience to economics and the creative sector. Since 2021, the Working Group for the Brain Capital Initiative has sought to define the Brain Capital concept and find relevant literature and data for its measurement. The first version of the dashboard was pre-launched in July 2022.
Brain Capital itself is defined as productive and complex capital stock that accumulates over the lifecycle, composed of a multi-dimensional set of factors. Brain Capital is measured as the cumulative brain health and brain skills of a society, influenced by drivers that either favor or jeopardize its development.
Brain Capital Dashboard is composed of three pillars identified for the Brain Capital monitoring:
Pillar 1: Brain Capital Drivers
Pillar 2: Brain Health
Pillar 3: Brain Skills
The Brain Capital concept provides a better understanding of the economic value that can be derived through identifying and unlocking latent human brain potential, and the Brain Capital Dashboard aims at tracking and monitors Brain Capital globally and over time. The EMEA team is continuously working on updating the dashboard with new indicators and data following discussions with experts and stakeholders worldwide.
