On 16th and 17th March, 2020 the new project Sharing Good practices for Brain Education in Europe (Share4Brain) was kicked off. In light of the COVID-19 epidemic, the kick-off meeting (KoM) was held by teleconference, in the context of the International Brain Awareness Week (BAW2020) and was aimed to discuss the future activities and the strategies to implement the two-years project.
“Share4Brain” is an Erasmus+ project, involving 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). It aims to follow the example of European countries by uniting patients, caregivers, brain researchers, scientists, clinicians at a national level and by providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to promote brain research and raise awareness about the societal impact of brain disorders.
Representatives of the above groups will meet on multiple occasions during the lifecycle of the project in order to share good practices, exchange perspectives on effective advocacy strategies and learn how to engage with decision-makers at national and EU levels.
CVBF will be involved in the implementation of training activities and sharing of good practices through workshops and translational meetings. On October 2021, in occasion of the World Brain Day, CVBF will organise the final project meeting in Bari.
A press release of the Kick-off meeting has been prepared and is available here.
