NeurotechEU in 2022

NeurotechEU, the European University of Brain and Technology, coordinated by Radboud University, aims to build a trans-European network of excellence in brain research and technologies to increase the competitiveness of European education, research, economy, and society.

The NeurotechEU project office and its organizational management have been housed within the Faculty of Science since 2022. This year also saw a change of program coordinator: Prof. dr. Paul Verschure succeeded Prof. dr. Tansu Celikel. The arrival of Prof. Paul Verschure led to the definition of eight dimensions in neurotechnology on which NeurotechEU will develop further.

From 5-16 September, the yearly Donders Cognition Brain and Technology (DCBT) (Barcelona Cognition Brain and Technology – BCBT during previous editions) summer school was organised in the framework of NeurotechEU. In 2022, we also started making content available to students in content management systems through the open-source platforms learnGala and INCF.

During the past year, Radboud University has worked as a lead party on the entry of two aspiring partners, the universities of Lille and Reykjavik, which were approved for phase 2 at the 4th Board of Rectors meeting in Elche, Spain. At the beginning of 2023, this application for phase 2 of NeurotechEU will be submitted to the European Commission; the NeurotechEU project office at Radboud University is taking the lead here.

Coming events

NeurotechEU organises events throughout the year which will be posted on theneurotech.eu and its social media accounts. From February 22 to April 5, a Best Practices in Doctoral Supervision Lecture Workshops is organised for NeurotechEU partners. The objective of this training program is to support and inspire Ph.D. supervisors in the development of teaching and leadership skills, and in promoting the use of best practices in the development of their Ph.D. students. Sessions will be held online and in English, and registration is not required. If you want the best performance out of your Ph.D. students: come and join the workshops!
