Conference and Exhibition: From the Human Brain to Breakthroughs in Technology and Medicine
This two-day event is an opportunity for industry, commercial organisations, and clinicians to engage with the Human Brain Project (HBP), one of the European Union’s Future Emerging Technology Flagships.
The HBP is building an integrated set of software and analytics tools for advanced brain research and technology development.
Day One of the event will combine talks from leading figures and high-level scientists in the HBP about the goals, progress and potential of the project, with presentations and testimonies from innovative companies working in the fields artificial intelligence, neuroscience, computing and brain-related medicine.
Day Two will provide an exhibition to showcase some of the achievements of the HBP so far and to demonstrate the potential of ongoing research to improve the European economy and advance new treatments for brain disorders. Companies with an interest in areas of research covered by HBP will also be invited to exhibit at the event.
The event is organised by multiple HBP partners with leadership from the University of Sheffield, the University of Amsterdam and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and by Erdyn, an innovation consultancy company.
Talks will be in English. There will be a charge for registration, participants can register for the first or second day or both.
