Feedback & Keys to Success
How do you feel BAW participation benefited your organization and the local community?
The two events presented at the Art School were very interesting to the students since at the end of the talks was a number of questions and there was a fruitful conversation. This way Hellenic Society for Neurosciences was advertised through BAW events. At the book presentation of “Women and Neurosciences in Greece” the audience get to know a sex related issue through another spectrum: Neurosciences.
