Neuroengineering Matinee (Jan. 16th 2019)

The Neuroengineering Matinee is a scientific morning event on Jan. 16th 2019 (9:30-13:00) at Vorhoelzer Forum, inviting all  researchers and students interested in neuroengineering to meet and discuss recent developments with MSNE associated faculty and students of the ENB Elite Master Program in Neuroengineering (TUM).

We are happy to announce guest talks by Patrick van der Smagt (Volkswagen AI), and Srinivas Turaga (HHMI's Janelia Research Campus). Sophomore MSNE students will present their research projects and publications (Neuroengineering Summit, part of MSNE Research Excellence Certificate).

Master students and researchers of other partner neuro-x study/graduate programs in Munich are cordially invited to join the Neuroengineering Matinee, to interact with neuroengineering students and faculty and to learn on opportunities across study programs. 

Registration: closed (past event)
