ABOUT THE CAUSE
The Brain Awareness Week (BAW) is a global campaign that is conducted every year all over the world with the support of Dana Foundation. It started with the idea of having a collaborative theme from facets like academia, government, professional and advocacy organizations, on the common topic Brain. Now, after 25 years of its establishment BAW has no other motive but to spread awareness about the three pound mass of jelly sitting inside your head.
The Dana Foundation alongside organizations like International Brain Research Organizations (IBRO) and Federation of European Neuroscience Societies (FENS) ask for proposals each year from universities, institutions, societies and organizations that work in the filed of Neuroscience and other related areas.
Every year, hundreds of entries are received and after rigorous and competitive selection, only a few, are chosen to execute the BAW. We are proud about the selection of our proposal from India and recognize our responsibility as Neuroscience students.
This Brain Awareness Week, with the support of Gujarat Forensic Sciences University brings Webinars, Competitions and give-away's for everyone. The sole purpose of this project organised by Shriya Naidu and co-organised by Vyoma Shah along with their team promotes gaining and sharing of knowledge by allowing experts to reach out to the general public and young minds.
