Brain disorders are highly prevalent and disabling conditions: neuropsychiatric disorders will affect at least one in three European citizens during their lifetime (an estimated 38.2% of the EU population annually). When the brain is damaged, it can affect different functions of the human body and can lead to disorders impacting both individuals and society.
This conference brings together high level representatives of Ministries of Health and Social Affairs, the European Commission, WHO, OECD and other key international institutions, as well as international experts who are at the forefront of shaping health policy. This includes keynote speeches from Martin Seychell (Deputy Director-General, Directorate General for Health and Food Safety, European Commission) and Dr. Line Matthiessen, Acting Director, Health Directorate, Directorate General for Research & Innovation, European Commission).
