Evey two years!
Every two years we strive to evolve!
In 2019, we aimed "oasis", and in 2021, we moved "towards hope". Now, in 2023, we are trying to look differently. Look differently to where diversity comes from, to different thoughts. This way, we suppose to embrace peace and creativity coming from the very precious blessing of being different from one another. If we do so; Galilei would not have been blamed for his idea, or maybe no one gets killed beacause of their beliefs. Therefore, we focus on "dimension". This event is brought to you by support of This event was sponsored by: Raees Coffee, Archeofashion, Braincast, Mindgraph and Iran University of Medical Sciencesb

On different dimensions, and then the world becomes a better place!

Pouya Paknejad

Cognitive science communicator
Pouya Paknejad was born in Isfahan on February 3rd, 1992. Since childhood, he dreamed of becoming a scientist. The most important questions of his life were formed around human behavior, during his teenage years. At that time, he noticed a deep gap between the realities of the world of science and people's mental image of science; A gap that could lead to the dominance of scientist over people. Therefore, Pouya, who dreamed of becoming a scientist, decided to democratize science and popularize science professionally instead of developing the boundaries of knowledge. After completing his bachelor's degree in cellular and molecular biology and a master's degree in cognitive science (cognitive psychology), he decided to continue his studies in media and communication. Pouya is currently a Ph.D. candidate in media management at Tehran University. Since launching braincast media, in 2020, Pouya has been continuously producing podcasts to popularize cognitive science.
