Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign that informs about the progress and benefits of brain research. Every year in March, brain researchers present their work to the public and answer questions about the brain and about their research.
This year Brain Awareness Week Berlin will take place from March 12-17. The event will be jointly organized by the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Berlin, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin, the Center for Stroke Research Berlin and the Cluster of Excellence NeuroCure. Admission for all events is free.
Participating Berlin science institutions will present a varied program during the action week, including lectures, workshops, and films for school children and adults. More information about the program is available at http://www.baw-berlin.de/index.html
Brain Awareness Week Berlin is financially supported by the DANA Foundation and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS).
