The Erasmus+ project, entitled Sharing Good practices for Brain Education in Europe (Share4Brain), will draw the attention of the academic and general public as well as relevant state institutions to the importance of the development of basic and clinical research in neuroscience to ensure better prevention, diagnosis and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
The Share4Brain project aims to unite patients, brain researchers, scientists, clinicians and carers at a national level and to provide them with the skills and knowledge necessary to promote brain research and raise awareness about the societal impact of brain diseases.
In light of the COVID-19 epidemic, the kick-off meeting was held by teleconference on 16-17 March 2020, in the context of the International Brain Awareness Week (BAW2020). The project involves organisations and institutions from Belgium (Belgian Brain Council), Greece (Greek Carers Network EPIONI and National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), Italy (CVBF), Serbia (Serbian Brain Council), and Spain (Spanish Brain Council) working to promote brain research and awareness.
Partners will meet on multiple occasions during the lifespan of the project in order to share good practices, exchange perspectives on effective advocacy strategies and learn how to engage with decision-makers at a national and EU level.
Share4Brain project will last until the end of November 2021.
