Dear researchers and young scientists,
We are thrilled to announce that the NeuroTech Talks, co-organized by Innovation Forum Lausanne (IFL) and the Center for Neuroprosthetics (CNP) of EPFL, are back after summer break. The next session, dedicated to start-ups and companies developing Non-invasive Brain Interfaces, will be on September 29th at 18h00 CET.
Beyond the science behind these applications, the seminars will focus on the personal, entrepreneurial challenges coming with the clinical translation of advances in neurotechnology. Speakers will share their career paths, the choices that brought them where they are today and their advices for PhD students and researchers seeking a future in the medical device industry.
The session chair, professor Silvestro Micera, head of the Translational Neural Engineering Lab at EPFL, will introduce the speakers:
- Daniel Månsson, CEO of Flow Neuroscience, using brain stimulation combined with psychological treatment to fight depression.
- Olivier Oullier, former President of EMOTIV and co-founder & chairman of Inclusive Brains, using BCI to enable paralysed patients to work in the digital job world.
- Quentin Soulet de Brugière, CEO and co-founder of Dreem, whose headband is designed to improve patients' sleep.
Registration for the conference is mandatory and can be carried out for free here. The link to access the fully online conference will be communicated a few days before the event. Be sure to stay tuned for future events in this talk series.
