Brain Awareness Week 2022

Brain awareness week dana foundation logo

This awareness week is a global campaign to engage the general public in brain science, and the impact brain research has on our everyday lives.

We are supporting Brain Awareness Week this year by sharing the latest news and development in the six EU research project grants we are involved in.

We want to raise awareness of stroke research in Europe and encourage involvement and participation in EU research.
