The Leuven Brain Institute
What are the organisation’s activities?
Over the past two years, the LBI participated in several science outreach activities. For instance this year in March, the LBI organised several activities such as lectures and workshops in the local community for Brain Awareness Week, an initiative from the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS). This global campaign wants to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science. The LBI was selected for funding by the DANA Foundation (USA) for these science outreach activities. In May 2021, the dedicated LBI running team that is composed of Professors, as well as Postdocs and PhDs, took part in several sportive events such as the Mind Matters Marathon, KULeuven Fund for mental health in children and adolescents) and Let’s Move for Parkinson (all profits go to Demoucelle Parkinson Charity for Parkinson research). In September 2021 for Alzheimer’s disease Awareness Week, the LBI will organise several activities including webinars and open lab tours.
