Mission Statement

The 3 basic missions of the Belgian Brain Council are:

1. To inform and educate the general population about the brain and its disorders

2. To lobby for an increase of financial and other resources for basic and clinical neuroscience research

3. To support the activities of its members and foster cross-talks between them, promoting patients' empowerment in the management of brain disorders and related public health policies.
