EMSP’s partners at the European Brain Council (EBC) organised a lunch debate to mark the Brain Awareness Week and to promote their ‘I Love My Brain’ initiative to a multi-stakeholder audience.

The event took place on 14 March in Brussels and was titled ‘Expanding Brain Research in Europe: A Societal Need?’

The main objectives were to recognise brain disorders as social and economic burdens, and to further stimulate brain research. Healthcare professionals, EU representatives and patient advocates all held key speeches.
