BrainLifeGoals Project Grants
Grants available for projects that raise awareness of brain disorder

The #BrainLifeGoals campaign is an initiative of EFNA that aims to raise awareness of the impact of neurological disorders.

BrainLifeGoals Project GrantsSharing #LifeGoals has become a popular trend in social media. #LifeGoals are the often frivolous wishes people have – for example to own a designer handbag, meet a particular pop star or drive a Maserati. This campaign puts a new spin on the trend by instead sharing #BrainLifeGoals.

In support of this campaign, EFNA are offering grants, of €2,500 each, to 5 projects which best reflect the theme of the campaign, raise awareness and improve understanding of neurological disorder.

  • Be patient-driven
  • Be patient-centred

  • Address the objectives of the Grant
  • Be innovative
  • Focus on European countries and be conducted in Europe

  • Involve a patient organisation (or patient organisations) in its implementation
  • Be transferable to other countries and regions
