The event is free and open to all neuroscientists, philosophers, EUR-students, non-EUR students and other enthusiasts!

The philosophy vs. neuroscience debate is co-organized by the Brain Awareness Week (BAW) 2020 of the department of Neuroscience in the Erasmus MC as well as ERA, the philosophy student association in Rotterdam.

Brain Awareness Week is the global campaign to foster public enthusiasm and support for brain science. Every March, partners host imaginative activities in their communities that share the wonders of the brain and the impact brain science has on our everyday lives.

The Neuroscience Department of Erasmus MC is a part of the Brain Awareness initiative, organizing events that can allow the public to get in touch with the current research done in the department. This year’s version is Neurotopia, as brains take over the city!
