Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:
I lead the coordination of 15 events organized in 7 cities (Brussels, Charleroi, Liège, Mons, Leuven, Gent, Namur). Each had their own design and varied public. In Liège, several events occurred with one dedicated to 200 students who could interact in real time using an application "Kahoot" and their smartphone to respond to questions. The event was video recorded and can be seen on the page braincouncli.be
