Overview


Understanding the human brain and its diseases is one of the greatest scientific and philosophical challenges. During the last decades, brain research has made great progress on all fronts but much more is still to be discovered.

Advances in neuroscience are crucial to keep our ageing societies and our economy healthy. Brain-related disorders will affect at least one in every three of us during our life and treating these disorders costs already now some 800 billion Euro in Europe every year.

Deciphering how our brain works is good for our health, our society and our industrial competitiveness. It has an important role to play for the achievement of the Europe 2020 strategy and of the Innovation Union.





Objectives

A month packed with activities to make a difference

  • to increase our awareness of the importance of brain research and healthcare matters
  • to showcase EU achievements
  • to outline foresight research and policy
  • to improve the resource allocation for brain research and healthcare within and between EU member states and associated countries
  • to lift taboos around mental health
