The DANA Foundation has approved a grant to FENS to finance events during the 2016 Brain Awareness Week (14-20 March).

The annual worldwide Brain Awareness Week is a campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, as well as progress in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disorders of the brain. 

FENS President, Monica Di Luca, commented: “It is vital for FENS to support this initiative. We are glad to see the involvement of universities, organisations, schools and scientists around Europe, joining the effort of increasing community awareness. There is a huge potential for improving the long-term health of the brain through lifestyle changes and prevention strategies”.
