Croatian Brain Awareness Week 2020

Croatian Society for Neuroscience, Croatian Institute for Brain Research, and the Research Centre of Excellence, of Fundamental, Clinical and Translational Neuroscience of the University of Zagreb's School of Medicine will, from 16th till 22nd March 2020, host the nineteenth Croatian Brain Week, a campaign known globally as the Brain Awareness Week.

Joining the organisation are constituent units of the universities of Split, Osijek and Rijeka, and members of the Croatian Society for Neuroscience in those university centres. Concurrently, activities are also expected to take place at the university centres in Zadar, Dubrovnik and Varaždin, as well as medical institutions in Zagreb and other cities.

Throughout the years, the goal was to inform the public on the importance of brain research in the 21st century - the Century of the Mind. The Croatian Society for Neuroscience has chosen "Brain and Evolution" as the new and interesting Brain Week theme to continue the dialogue with the public on significant brain research questions.

The final schedule of Brain Week will be decided on no later than 13th March 2020. The timetable and all additional information will be available on the Croatian Institute for Brain Research website.
