On Tuesday, November 7th, 2023 the CSA BrainHealth held its kick-off meeting in Bonn, Germany, and online

More than 90 attendees witnessed the formal opening and start of the CSA BrainHealth. The program comprised presentations by EU Commission representatives and partners of the CSA project. Representatives of European and international countries, the European Brain Council (EBC), the digital infrastructure EBRAINS, and the patient organization European Federation of Neurological Associations (EFNA) entered into a lively discussion with the broad audience about the scope of the project, the meaning of the term ‘brain health’ and the role of social sciences therein.
The coordinator, Dr. Marlies Dorlöchter (DLR, Germany) summarized: “In preparation of the envisaged European Partnership on Brain Health, the CSA BrainHealth is ready to start the complex process, and I am glad to rely on such strong partners. Brain health as a common and global challenge requires collaborative and integrative efforts.”
