Registration is officially open for the upcoming EBC Brain Awareness Week event on Global Partnerships in Brain Research, a continuation of a series of events and meeting held around the topic, most recently within the Science Summit at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA. The full-day event will take place on 16 March 2023 in Brussels, Belgium.

With plenty of high-caliber brain research underway across the world, the fostering of concrete global partnerships and alliances for brain research is urgently needed – sharing knowledge and learning from peers, working in collaboration rather than silos and strengthening alignment across diverse public and private entities to structure and track investments for the benefit of international research and the health of all populations. Brain health is global and should not be tackled solely at the regional level – but at a global level, particularly as our world grows increasingly borderless. Competition in this space would be futile to address the growing burden of brain disorders and the need for improved brain health in society.

This high-level, international event will bring together key stakeholders to reflect on the global burden of brain disease, enhancing brain health and how to approach the challenges together through knowledge and data sharing, capacity building, funding and policy: key areas to forge a path towards stronger international alliances and a grander brain plan.

The programme is almost final and is currently available on the registration page:
