One European University — Countless Possibilities

NeurotechEU: the European University of Brain and Technology

NeurotechEU is an alliance of nine leading European universities (Radboud Universiteit, Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche, Karolinska Institutet, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn, Boğaziçi Üniversitesi, Universitatea de Medicină și Farmacie “Iuliu Hațieganu” din Cluj-Napoca, Debreceni Egyetem, Université de Lille, Reykjavik University) and over 250 partners from industry, academia and civil society that have set themselves the mission of building an innovative, trans-European network of excellence for brain research and technologies. This network of excellence offers an ideal platform for delivering multidisciplinary, intersectoral and personalized training for bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral students in Europe while also promoting lifelong learning in all areas of society. This is designed to help increase the international competitiveness of European education, research, economy and society. NeurotechEU has set itself the goal of being both the backbone of efforts to tackle the challenges of neuroscience and a center for pioneering technologies in 2040.

Priorities, work packages and contacts

Collaboration between the partner universities that make up the European alliance is being optimized by creating a virtual platform, NeurotechEU Spaces, and a virtual teaching and learning platform, Campus+, to offer in-person, online and hybrid learning. The NeurotechEU Center for Lifelong Learning will support the continuing further development of its graduates and society in general. Integration into society and the economy will help these modern, excellent universities to focus on the current and future needs of the world in the areas of education, innovation and society in order to make their graduates more employable and foster an entrepreneurial spirit. Another priority for NeurotechEU Bonn is providing bespoke online courses in German as a foreign language that are tailored to the respective target group.
