Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

12th edition of the Brain Days in Tricity took place at the University of Gdansk from 14 to 20 March 2022. We have conducted 50 on-line live webinars and over 50 laboratory workshops for children and adults. The whole program is available at the website In total, over 2,000 people participated in all on-line lectures. All the places at the reserved workshops (over 500) were used, and over 1,500 people participated in the open-access workshops.

Thanks to a grant from the Dana Foundation and the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies we have prepared a city game about neurobiology on the campus of the University. The game was played using a mobile application and over 80 teams took part in it. Everyone who finished the game was rewarded with brain gifts. The game is still enabled to play and anyone can play the game at any time.

Which of These Publicity Methods Was The Most Successful?

Our Brain Days in Tri-City is already known in the Tri-City, so we mainly rely on information passed between students, teachers, and we provide information through the media.
