Brain Awareness Week is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research organised
by the Dana Foundation. Every March, partner organizations worldwide work together to celebrate the brain for people of all ages. Past activities have included open days at neuroscience labs, exhibitions about the brain, lectures on brain-related topics, social media campaigns, displays at libraries and community centers, and classroom workshops – to name a few.
In 2017, EBC held two Brain Awareness Week events: a lunch debate at the University Foundation in Brussels followed by an outreach event at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Both events were highly successful, with a good showing of policymakers, researchers and the general public who openly interacted with each other and the speakers during the hour of open discussion following the presentations.
EBC, thus, looks forward to repeating the outreach event at the European Parliament, Strasbourg, again in 2018. Read more about the event HERE.
