In collaboration with the Center for Neuroprosthetics at EPFL, Innovation Forum Lausanne is orgainizing the NeuroTech Talk series. This conference series revolves around industrial applications in the fields of neuroscience and neuroprosthetics. The goal of this project is to broaden the view of researchers on what's outside academia. 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 series will officially start on Thursday 4th March 2021 at 5pm CET with the Opening Event, where professor Stephanie Lacour will be leading the seminar and introducing the speakers:
