The role of National Brain Councils (NBCs) - Poster presentation at SIP 2019
Roland Pochet, François Mauguière, Jose-Luis Trejo, Pavle Andjus, Fréderic Destrebecq – European Brain Council (EBC)
The National Brain Councils (NBCs) were highlighted in a separate poster as an example of an active network of national multi-stakeholder platforms under the umbrella of the European Brain Council (EBC).
National Brain Councils are coordinated with a core group of 4 NBCs (Belgium, France, Spain and Serbia) which act as observers at the EBC Board to ensure concerted, harmonized and coherent actions. NBCs have endorsed the Brain, Mind & Pain (BMP) evidence book. More specifically and practically, 12 National Brain Councils (Belgium, Croatia, Czech, France, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, Serbia and Spain) have approached their respective Ministers of Research to urge them to consider prioritising the proposed “brain health” partnership as part of their top three priorities.
