 Registration is closed for this event
Brain Awareness Week 2018: Expanding brain research in Europe – Education, Behaviour and Brain Development

On 15 March 2018, EBC will co-organise an event at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the occasion of Brain Awareness Week 2018. The event will take place in room LOW N3.3 from 10:00-12:00.

Based on our highly successful outreach event at the Parliament last year, which included 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, we will bring a similar event to Strasbourg once again.

Co-hosted by MEPs Anne Sander (France, EPP), Daciana Sârbu (Romania, S&D) and Lieve Wierinck (Belgium, ALDE), the event will focus on the continued need for expansion of brain research in Europe, this time with specific focus on education, behaviour and brain development. The speakers list consists of highly-lauded scientists from the various fields of expertise: Prof. Albert Gjedde, University of Copenhagen, Prof. Steven Laureys, University of Liège and Prof. Gaia Novarino, FENS Kavli Scholar & Institute of Science and Technology Austria.

This event is organised in cooperation with EBC, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), the European Dana Alliance for the Brain (EDAB), the Belgian Brain Council (BBC), with support from Neuropôle de Strasbourg and Le Bureau Europe Grand Est.
