European Network for integrated TRAINing on Innovative Therapies for VISion RestoratiON

Project description

Innovative ESR training for vision restoration

Affecting 39 million people worldwide, blindness is a handicap that reduces autonomy and mobility. Clinical tests have demonstrated that retinal prostheses in patients who have lost photoreceptors can lead to a certain degree of vision. This is improved by the introduction of new methods into clinical tests such as photovoltaic implants, optogenetic therapy and even cortical prostheses for patients who have a lost eye-to-brain connection. The EU-funded ENTRAIN VISION project will train early stage researchers (ESR) on these innovative technologies, aiming to establish a distinctive European network of researchers, clinicians and industrialists dealing with vision restoration in blind patients. The training will include winter and summer schools offering theoretical and practical knowledge on specific issues regarding vision restoration as well as advice on transferable skills in technology, start-up establishment and communication to media.
