May 2013: European Month of the Brain

May 2013 will be the European month of the brain. The aim is to increase awareness of the importance of brain research and healthcare matters, showcase EU achievements, outline foresight research and policy, improve the resource allocation for brain research and healthcare within and between EU member states and associated countries and lift taboos around mental health.

 

The European Commission will organise two key events as part of the European Month of the Brain 2013:

– A conference to showcase European projects in the field and outline future scientific challenges (organised in [ http://ec.europa.eu/research/conferences/2013/brain-month/index_en.cfm?pg=conference&sub=general ]Brussels on 14 May 2013)

– A conference on European foresight policy for brain research and healthcare (organised under the Irish EU Presidency in [ http://ec.europa.eu/research/conferences/2013/brain-month/index_en.cfm?pg=conference-dublin&sub=general ]Dublin on 27-28 May 2013)

 

The Conferences are open to the general public, free of charge, on a first-come-first-served basis.
