    The 2018 EARLI SIG 22 Neuroscience and Education conference aimed to facilitate the discussion and sharing of research and translation in educational neuroscience. In this article we first describe and evaluate the approach taken in organising the conference, which followed recommendations from the educational neuroscience community. We then summarise responses to a survey that captured delegates’ visions of research and translation, their intentions following the conference, and the support they need moving forward. From 88 completed surveys we first note a common desire for more discussions and collaborations across disciplines, and between teachers and researchers. We highlight particularly novel ideas that are not frequently addressed in the community so far, including discussion of ethical issues, inclusion of learners in research development, open resources for teacher training in neuroscience, and mentoring networks for community members. In sharing these ideas we highlight future directions for the field as it continues to develop.
