Networking: poster presentations and live demos, have a look around and enjoy snacks

This year’s CoC Neuroengineering networking meeting was accompanied by the MSNE Summit of the Elite Master Program in Neuroengineering launched in October 2016. In short talks and poster presentations, the MSNE students presented their research projects. By joining the events, we aimed to foster exchange and networking among CoC associates and the MSNE cohort.
