Brain Awareness Week-more locations

The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is an initiative that for more than 25 years has been working on connecting the scientific fields studying the brain with the non-academic community and the general population to understand why it is important to learn about, to know, to study, and to take care of the brain. The BAW is celebrated on the third week of March every year in more than 100 countries, involving universities, hospitals, NGOs, colleges, and private organizations.​ Here you can find some Brain Awareness Week activities in The Netherlands and around the world!

The members of the BAW are all gathered under the coordination of the Dana Foundation, from which the Erasmus University College has become a partner from April 2022.
