Neurotechnology SIG: Kick-off Workshop

Event details
Thursday, 11 July 2019
9:30 am – 16:00 pm
Be part of the first workshop for the new Neurotechnology SIG

From bioelectronic medicines that treat chronic diseases, to brain computer interfaces that help stroke rehabilitation, neurotechnology will play an increasingly important role in meeting some of the challenges of an ageing society. The KTN is launching the Neurotechnology Special Interest Group (SIG) which aims to grow the neurotechnology community and accelerate innovation through cross-sector collaborations. The SIG will help transfer knowledge from academia to the fast-growing industry sector and will provide a vital meeting place for clinicians and technologists.

The kick off event on the 11th July will introduce the aims and objectives of the SIG and give delegates the opportunity to hear about the latest innovations in the field, network with leading experts in the sector and find out about funding opportunities.

Agenda to be confirmed.
