Early in December 2022, a NeurotechEU work session took place at Radboud University in Nijmegen (the Netherlands). Around 30 researchers, students, philosophers, teachers, and clinicians participated in this fruitful, hybrid discussion that took place in the Red Room of the Donders Institute.
The session had been organised to elaborate on the eight-dimensional space that defines the envelope of current and future research, education, and application of Neurotechnology. Staff and students of Radboud University were invited to take part in contributing to defining and developing the programs within NeurotechEU. This resulted in concrete ideas, such as what student profile researchers, teachers, and students see fit for NeurotechEU, what is missing from the current education offer to train young researchers in their areas of expertise and what infrastructure is needed to do this efficiently.
The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behaviour is a world-class research center devoted to understanding the mechanistic underpinnings of human cognition and behavior in health and disease. The Institute is home to hundreds of international researchers who all aim to contribute to the advancement of the brain-, cognitive- and behavioral sciences through investigator-driven research, and improve health, education, and technology by applying advances in this field.
