The meeting was followed by a common session with another consortium, and a jointly organized public conference. The Max Planck Institute for Human Development hosted the events in the historic Harnack House, located in Dalem, the center for academic research in Berlin.
Last week Lifebrain participated in the Oslo Science Expo for the second year in a row. The aim of this event is to make science and research available to the public. The sun was shining and curious school classes, tourists and families visited our tent.
Almost 200 people turned up for the public lecture “Good brain health is important” at the Literature House in Oslo 4th June 2019, filling the venue to the brim.
