In December 2019 started Share4Brain (Sharing Good Practices for Brain Education in Europe), the project funded within the European Programme Erasmus Plus – Strategic partnership for adult education that will be kicked off officially on 15 and 16 March, 2020.
The project, led by Belgian Brain Council, gathers a consortium of 4 partners beyond the coordinator: Greek Carers Network EPIONI, Consejo Español del Cerebro, Serbian Brain Council, Consorzio per Valutazioni Biologiche e Farmacologiche.
The aim of Share4Brain is to connect patients, brain researchers, scientists, clinicians and carers at national and international level, providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to promote brain research and raise awareness about the societal impact of brain diseases. Representatives of the above groups will meet on multiple occasions during the lifecycle of the project in order to share best practices, exchange perspectives on effective advocacy strategies and learn how to engage with decision-makers at national and EU levels.
What is more, the project aims to bring them together within National Brain Councils (NBCs), thereby uniting all stakeholders involved in brain research within transversal platforms that operate at country level. Lastly, “Share4Brain” will aim to enhance cross-border cooperation between NBCs for the purpose of defining key priorities for National Brain Plans, which will ultimately benefit people living with mental or neurological conditions.
CVBF will be involved in the implementation of training activities and sharing of good practices through workshops and translational meetings.
