The Brain Innovation Days team is very pleased to announce that registration is now open for the third Brain Innovation Days event, to be held virtually on 27 April 2021 at 12:30 – 14:00 CET. This lunchtime interactive session will fall under the theme “Fast-tracking brain innovation in times of COVID-19”.
The last 14 months have been testing for global health. COVID-19 exposed weaknesses in public health systems’ preparedness to face pandemics and we continue to face the consequences over a year on. However, the emergence of COVID-19 has also succeeded in accelerating innovation in science, treatments, healthcare and health management. Thanks to increased responsiveness from authoritative bodies and strengthened public-private partnerships, more agile ways of fast-tracking innovation were set in motion. This Brain Innovation Days digital session will explore the positive direct and indirect results of COVID-19 pandemic response and research on the brain innovation ecosystem, featuring key opinions leaders, patient testimonials, clinicians, representatives from the EU and WHO level and the industries that were forced to adapt to this rapid change of pace in innovation.
