The European University of Brain and Technology

Oxford Neuroscience has joined NeurotechEU  - The European University of Brain and Technology.

This €5M Erasmus+ partnership was led by Tansu Celikel at Radboud University in the Netherlands.

The other partners are: Miguel Hernández University (SP), The Karolinska (SW), Bonn University (DE), Boğaziçi University (TR), Iuliu Hațieganu University (RO), and Debrecen University (HU).

European Universities are transnational alliances promoting European values and identity, and revolutionising the quality and competitiveness of European higher education. There are now a total of 41 European University alliances involving 279 higher education institutions from EU Member States and other countries participating in Erasmus+. NeurotechEu is the first of these to be specifically targeted at Neuroscience.

Cutting edge Neuroscience has great promise to deliver brain-centred or brain-inspired solutions that could benefit the society and kindle a new economy in Europe. The European University of Brain and Technology  - NeurotechEU aims to be the backbone of this new vision.

Oxfords contribution to NeurotechEU is led by Zoltán Molnár and Kia Nobre

The project is based around 6 work packages each led by a different member institute.

  • WP 1     General management and coordination
  • WP 2      Quality control and assurance
  • WP 3      Neurotech 2040
  • WP 4      Neurochallenges in education and research
  • WP 5      Neurochallenges in technological innovation
  • WP 6      Neurochallenges in societal innovation
  • WP 7      Widening access: diversity, multilingualism and multiculturalism
  • WP 8      Sustainability and dissemination

Further details are available in the work package descriptions. Oxford is leading on WP6.  We have held a number of activities including an introduction to digital monitoring.

If you are passionate about Oxford in Europe there are lots of ways you can get involved in NeurotechEU by joining in with work package activities.
