2020 #BrainLifeGoals Project Grant winners announced!
About the #BrainLifeGoals Project Grants
In 2020, in the framework of our #BrainLifeGoals campaign, EFNA will once again provide grants to support work on one of our three advocacy themes for the coming years. This year the focus will be on:
Ensuring Equitable Access to Treatment, Services and Support for Neurology Patients and their Carers
Access to treatment is one of the central #BrainLifeGoals of many neurology patients, and we want to help make that a reality across Europe!
Therefore, EFNA will provide up to 10 grants of €3,000 each to selected organisations.
Projects should address the recommendations arising from an EFNA workshop on ‘access’ in 2019, where barriers and possible solutions were discussed.
Therefore, projects should be:
– Advocacy/policy initiatives on access to treatment, services or support for those affected by neurological disorders
– Awareness raising initiatives/campaigns on access to treatment, services or support for those affected by neurological disorders
– Training and capacity building initiatives for neurology patients/patient advocates on topics related to access
– Providing information or training to healthcare professionals in the diagnosis, treatment and/or management of neurological disorders
Deadline for application was May 31st 2020.
