Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology

The goal of Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology is to bridge the gap between neuroscientific research and neurotechnological application, and to reduce the time it takes for research findings to be translated into marketable products. Research will focus on a better understanding of the underlying neural mechanisms and dynamics, devising model approaches, and including a quantitative analysis in the meaning of computational science. Key components of the Bernstein Focus: Neurotechnology concept are the participation of industry partners and an integrated technology transfer concept, including a training programme to improve interdisciplinary training of young scientists. Project-related cooperation with groups outside of the centres assist in cross-network technology transfer.
