The BarcelonaBeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) professionals, aware of the importance of covering the concerns of the new generations, offer orientation sessions aimed at students interested in approaching the reality of Alzheimer's disease. These sessions provide an initial vision about what the current state of the research is and how the disease affects those who suffer from it and their environment. In order to attend one of these sessions, Secondary, A-Level or University students interested must register in this form.

In this sense, the BBRC participates in various initiatives, such as the World Brain Week, organized by the Institute of Education of the Barcelona City Council. During that week, public and concerted educational centers in the city of Barcelona have the opportunity to learn first-hand about the lines of research that are being pursued in the field of neurosciences. The talks are aimed at students from 10 to 20 years old.

On the other hand, in 2017 the researchers of the BBRC developed the Life Soundtrack project, in which a group of adolescents interacted with people with Alzheimer's and could verify and evaluate by themselves the effects that music emotionally linked to the lives of patients produced in them.
