The European Brain Council and beLean.net launch the first Brain Innovation Days, which will take place on 13-14 October 2020 physically in Brussels and virtually all over Europe.

179 million Europeans are currently living with brain disorders and this is to steadily increase as the population ages. Though one in three Europeans are set to live with a brain disease at some point in their life – neurological and mental alike – brain treatments remain insufficient and research is disproportionately underfunded compared to other disease areas.Enhanced multi-stakeholder engagement in the brain ecosystem is needed to foster dialogue, exchange knowledge, accelerate investment in research and innovation, facilitate business development and showcase on-going work.

This is what the Brain Innovation Days are about: a platform bringing together science and society and an annual event where leaders in the brain ecosystem, researchers, industry, start-ups, innovators, policymakers, investors, health care professionals and patients are invited to discover the potential for innovation with strong matchmaking opportunities
