An event supported by EIT Health to stress the importance of ageing as a societal challenge
On 4 September, IBEC welcomed Edward Moser, winner of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Medicine, as the keynote speaker in an event to celebrate the move of ICREA professor and ERC grantee Prof. Paul Verschure to the institute.
The event was supported by EIT Health and the MINECO Network of Excellence “Spanish Health Knowledge and Innovation Community for healthy lifestyle and active aging”.
The event, entitled ‘From the Science of Memory to the Future of Neuroengineering’, was held at Palau Macaya of Barcelona and supported by “La Caixa” Foundation. During the session, Moser talked about his pioneering work into the basic neural computations that underlie cognition and behavior.
Prof. Verschure’s joined the Synthetic Perceptive, Emotive and Cognitive Systems (SPECS) group at IBEC and aims to strengthen the institute’s neuroengineering research in the framework of its Bioengineering for Active Ageing programme.
This gathering was part of a series of scientific events organized by the network devoted to stressing the importance of ageing as a societal challenge and to highlight different solutions that science and engineering can provide.
