Expanding brain research in Europe: Education, Behaviour and Brain Development
March 15th, 2018
About the Event
On 15 March 2018, EBC will once again hold an event at the European Parliament in Strasbourg on the occasion of Brain Awareness Week 2018. 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, SD) 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, Prof. Steven Laureys, Prof. Gaia Novarino
