8 Work Packages For 8 Partners

The continuous integration of education, research and innovation is one key aim of the NeurotechEU measures. These project measures are being coordinated in eight work packages designed to build a transnational, transdisciplinary educational offering. Each work package is led by one of the eight universities, and all institutions are represented in all work packages.

Work packages, topic areas and contacts

The structure and organizational unit are designed to safeguard the long-term process for establishing a European University. The project is divided into eight work packages: (1) General Management and Coordination, (2) Quality Control and Assurance, (3) Think Tank NeurotechEU 2040, (4) Education and Research, (5) Technological Innovation, (6) Societal Innovation, (7) Diversity, Multilingualism and Multiculturalism, and (8) Sustainability and Dissemination.

The University of Bonn is coordinating the central work package number 4, Education and Research, which relates directly to educational structures.
