Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

We organized visits to schools to meet children from 6 to 18 years old. There was a huge demand from teachers and we could not satisfy them all. However, we mobilized 65 volunteers (researchers, PhD students) to go into schools and we met more than 2800 children.

We also organized 9 conferences, 2 visioconferences, 3 informal discussions, 2 documentaries followed by a debate, and one show in a theatre which was a real success.

We were a bit disappointed by the lower public attendance at conferences compared to usual (before 2020 and Covid pandemic).

Event Planning & Publicity

Publicity Methods Used:

  • Calendar Listings (newspapers, radio, television)
  • Emails
  • Posters/Flyers
  • Press Release/Media Advisory
  • Website
  • Social Media

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

It is difficult to know which one was most efficient, but I suspect that media (newspaper, radio, television) and flyers worked well.

Feedback & Keys to Success

How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?

We work in close relationship with the French neuroscience society so we did not really feel the need to turn toward BAW to find some help
