Feedback & Keys to Success

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

Our online presentations dealed on the relation between brain function and physical activity. Most of the participants/ viewers were University's students of an undergraduate program: Physical Activity and Health Sciences. The topics were considered by themselves very important for their academic development. Through the activities they were able to learn deeper on the relation of exercise and brain functioning, as well to interact with the speakers.

Please share any suggestions or lessons learned that may help others plan future events:

We learned that online events are very important, that they allow the interaction with the participants in some extent. However, we believe that for future meetings we would like more direct interaction, even to run some hands on an demostrative experiments. As a consequence, once the COVID-19 pandemic allows it we would like hybrid events.
