Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research.
BAW is March 13th-19th 2017 and unites the efforts of partner organisations worldwide in a celebration of the brain for people of all ages. Activities include open days at neuroscience labs; exhibitions about the brain; lectures on brain-related topics; social media campaigns; displays at libraries and community centres; classroom workshops; and more.
BAW provides a wonderful opportunity to place your organisation’s work in the public spotlight. By celebrating BAW, you can:
- Increase your visibility by advancing your mission within the broader context of a global education initiative.
- Spread the word about the importance of brain research and its critical role in helping people lead healthier, more productive lives.
- Arm the public with the knowledge and information they need to make informed decisions about their health.
- Insure a future for neuroscientific discovery by inspiring the next generation of scientists.
