We create and lead the Neuromorphic Computing Technology community in Europe, by catalyzing research and collaboration.

Develop links between Academic Labs and Industry


We aim to enable the uptake of NCT in real-world applications and to match the needs of companies that develop future products with research and technology development. The envisioned applications are in smart industry, health-care, intelligent assistive systems, cognitive robotics, and consumer devices. We aim to create a sustainable communication channel between research labs, industry, general public, and other stakeholders.


Provide access to educational resources


NEUROTECH project assembles and curates a collection of educational resources on all aspects of NCT, to promote core educational events on NCT, and to disseminate NCT curriculum to other communities. The current list of available educational resources can be found in the Blog section. It includes video recordings of lectures, courses at selected Universities, and talk series.


Develop guidelines for the future of NCT


In the NEUROTECH Roadmap we start by defining the goals of the field. Then we explain the main applications of the field, which makes it so promising, and provide a market analysis. We present the main technologies that support neuromorphic computing. We explain the challenges that the field is currently facing and provide paths to overcome them. We provide guidelines toward industry adoption of neuromorphic computing. Finally we present timelines of the main directions in which we expect the field to progress.

2021 Misha Mahowald Prize for Neuromorphic Engineering, 2021 Mahowald Early Career Award

The Misha Mahowald Prize recognizes outstanding research in neuromorphic engineering in a broad sense: neurally-inspired hardware, software, and algorithms; as well as other novel architectures. The Prize is awarded by a jury of international experts Chaired by Prof. Terrence Sejnowski, and carries a prize of USD 10’000.

The Mahowald Early Career Award recognizes outstanding Master's students, PhD doctoral students, or postdocs within one year of PhD degree conferral date.  The Award is for an individual (not a group) who has created innovative neuromorphic hardware, software, or an algorithm.  The Award is decided by a jury of established mid-career scientists Chaired by Prof. Andre van Schaik, and carries a prize of USD 2’000 together with a guaranteed seat at either the Capo Caccia or the Telluride Workshops for Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering.

The submission deadline for both the Prize and the Award is 23:59 UTC, 31 October 2021.

For more information about the Prize and Award, see the home page:
