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 for Brain Awareness Week 2019
11 - 17 March
The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an opportunity to let people know about the progress that is 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.
FENS is happy to announce that the Dana Foundation once more allocated funds for the support of European BAW projects in 2019.
The call for Brain Awareness Week project proposals is now closed.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 Dana/FENS grant!
