In collaboration with the Center for Neuroprosthetics (CNP) at EPFL, Innovation Forum Lausanne is organizing 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.

This session taking place on 6th May 2021 at 18:00 CET will focus on Swiss start-ups developing Brain Interfaces. Jordi Montserrat, co-founder and partner of Venturelab and managing director of both Venturelab and Venturekick, will be leading the seminar and introducing the speakers:
