Brain Awareness Week
During Brain Awareness Week (BAW), a global campaign to increase public awareness of the progress and benefits of brain research, several events are yearly organized by CNC with the sponsorship of the Portuguese Society for Neuroscience (SPN), the Ciência Viva Agency, the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS), and The Dana Foundation.

Every March, several actions take place for school-age children and the general public. During the action “Neuroscientists go to Schools” neuroscientists visit schools from the region and give lectures on brain related subjects to high school students; elementary and middle school students perform hands-on activities also on brain-related subjects. During the action “Open Laboratories” students visit CNC’s laboratories and take part in talks about neuroscience research. Numerous exhibitions (scientific photography, students artwork,..), concerts, conferences and debates are also organized during BAW events, for which we have the close collaboration of the Science Museum, Science Center and local City Council.
