On 6 July 2011, the Dialogue to dialogue - bid final conference took place at the Stanhope Hotel in Brussels, Belgium.
The meeting was an opportunity to present three and half years of initiatives, workshops, publications about neuroscience and its impact on society and discuss the main outcomes throught the voices of previous bid events' participants. Key challanges and potential approaches were also analysed together with keynote speakers.
