Our academic collaborations are crucial to our service offerings and ongoing growth.
We collaborate with several prestigious Universities in the UK and continental Europe, while also acting as a public engagement partner.
A selection of our academic collaborations is listed below, in alphabetical order.
WHAT OUR ACADEMIC COLLABORATIONS ACHIEVE
BabyBrains®️ works together with several academic institutions to contribute to disseminating cognitive science in an accurate and effective way.
Our longest standing collaboration is with the University of Essex, but Birkbeck, Cambridge, Goldsmith, Milan and many others are now part of our partners too.
We develop new workshops, we broadcast mini-lectures, we interview scientists, we constantly update our app - we create new content and bring it to families, so that adults can be empowered by knowledge and provide the best possible environment for the development of the new generation.
CALL FOR PARENTS
FOR SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH
Help science and learn how to observe your child with the curiosity of a scientist!
Scientists need parents to help them. They invite parents and babies!
We help different academic teams in their campaigns for the recruitment for participants in studies: we find out what they are researching, what questions they ask themselves, what parents can observe at home that a scientist would love to see as well…and we tell you all about it.

OVERVIEW OF OUR ACADEMIC COLLABORATORS
University of Essex
BabyBrains has collaborated with Dr Silvia Rigato at the Essex Babylab for several years.
Our first longitudinal research project (It All Starts In the Womb) is drawing to an end and we are beginning to see mind-blowing data about perinatal wellbeing for mothers and how this is related to their children development. We are also enthusiastic members of the From the Womb to the World Multidisciplinary Group with the goal ok making science more accessible to parents.
BabyBrains® Body was developed our of our collaboration with University of Essex.
Goldsmiths, University of London
BabyBrains is working with the Developmental and Educational Science group at Goldsmith bringing the researcher's science into people's home through a series of talks called The Weird and Wonderful World of Children.
Birkbeck, University of London
In collaboration with Prof Emily Jones, Dr Anna Gui and their team, BabyBrains is working on making science more and more personalised. We are also developing an “intelligent” version of the BabyBrains app that is able to adapt to the preferences, needs, and unique development of each child-parent pair.
University of Cambridge
BabyBrains is the nominated public engagement partner in Dr Sarah Lloys-Fox' UKRI Future Leadership Fellowship, based at the University of Cambridge. The ambitious goal of this project is to better understand the perinatal period and to develop specific interventions, with a specific focus on the effects of poverty on brain development and function.
In the past, we have worked with researchers at the following institutions:
University of Cambridge - Braintools, a Global Health Project
University of London, Birkbeck College - Teach-brite, a tech project for parental education
Goldsmith University - exploring perinatal wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic
University of Oxford - perinatal wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic
WE WELCOME NEW BABYLABS & UNIVERSITIES
If you are a scientist and want to make sure your science has an impact, we will be delighted to assist you in that, by either helping you communicate more effectively, or by doing so for you.
