Development of a World-Level Neuroengineering Research Centre by European Twinning

Project description

Strengthening neuroengineering research in Romania

Neuroengineering is a rising discipline that applies engineering techniques to study, restore, replace and strengthen neural systems. This interaction between medical research and engineering has the potential to achieve significant progress in the understanding and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases as well as in the development of brain-connected prosthetics. The Technical University Gheorghe Asachi in Iasi (TUIASI) is a strong research and higher education centre in engineering fields and is part of the North East Regional Innovative Cluster for Structural and Molecular Imaging. The EU-funded BrainTwin project will increase networking activities and support TUIASI in developing a new centre for research and education by strengthening its scientific and technological capacity. The project will connect TUIASI with leading research institutions from Germany and Spain and secure knowledge transfer from Austria and Germany.
