The Brain Innovation Days bring the brain ecosystem together to foster dialogue, exchange knowledge, accelerate investment in research & innovation and facilitate business development.

Look back at the 2023 Brain Innovation Days 

The 3rd edition of the Brain Innovation Days took place on 26-27 October 2023 in Brussels (Belgium) under the overarching theme “The Brain in the 21st Century”, centred around building resilience and better brain health for future generations and increasing our brains’ readiness to adapt to an ever-changing environment. Look back at the two jam-packed days of high-level brain innovation!
