Brain Awareness Week
The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is the global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
Join us on 13-19 March for the Brain Awareness Week 2017
The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an opportunity to let people know about the progress that are being done in brain research as well as progress in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the brain, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, schizophrenia and depression.
FENS, on behalf of the Dana Foundation, offers financial support of up to 1,000 EUR to event organisers within Europe during the Brain Awareness Week. Proposals are subject to a highly rigorous and competitive selection process.
In order to help you and support your project, The Dana Foundation developed a new series of downloadable outreach materials for children and adults. Materials include puzzles and fact sheets, some of which have been translated into several languages. You can find the material on The Dana Foundation's page.
FENS is happy to announce that the Dana Foundation once more allocated funds for the support of European BAW projects in 2017.

To mark the occasion, the Dana Foundation produced a video that looks back on BAW's 20 years of education and outreach about the brain. The video features many of the photographs you've shared with us over the years, from BAW events around the globe.
