1 September 2011- message from the bid team

Goodbye from the bid project

After three and a half years the bid - brains in dialogue project has come to an end. bid has been a great experience for us and, we hope, for all the scientists, patients, clinicians, lawyers, ethicists, journalists and lay citizens that attended the bid events we organized around Europe. A great thanks goes to all of them.
We hope that the interdisciplinary dialogue on neuroscience will go on and we are confident that what we did may be like a seed ready to sprout.
The neuromediacorner website will not be updated anymore, but all the articles, videos and documents uploaded on the way will remain at your disposal for some time. We hope these may be useful to you.
Many thanks and best wishes
The bid team
