Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
Divulgation of Neuroscience, contact with the scientists, sharing methods, knowledge, ideas. Provide to graduate and PhD students, opportunities to participate and or organize an event.Enjoy the connection between science and art
Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:
I think to give an opportunity to PhD student or pos-doc to participate or organize an activity during the BAW is very valuable.They learn about organizing an event and also a lot how to communicate with general public, to divulgate their science in a way that is understandable.
