In the lead up to the 2019 European elections, EBC released its Election Manifesto, a call and reminder to MEPs for an improved quality of life for Europeans living with brain conditions.

The Manifesto called on Members of the European Parliament to guide the EU to the role of global leader in brain research, sustain EU funding to expand and boost brain research, improve the quality of care for patients across the EU, recognize brain health as a priority for European society, and encourage awareness, early preventative measures and early intervention to address the growing burden of brain conditions. It was distributed in the letter boxes of all the MEPs – old and new – post-election.
