NEUROTECH Fellowships for CapoCaccia 2020

It's that time of the year again: Days are getting short, it's getting colder, and everyone in the NEUROTECH community is eagerly awaiting a special event... the call for Capocaccia Fellowship applications!

Wait no longer!

The EU FETPROACT Coordination and Support Action project NEUROTECH offers 10 fellowships to support scholars attending the 2020 CapoCaccia Workshop toward Neuromorphic Intelligence (Apr 27 - May 10 2020).

The CapoCaccia Workshop is a hands-on workshop, a discussion forum, and an educational event, in which we bring together experts in neuroscience, neuromorphic engineering, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, and robotics to discuss the open problems in these fields and to work on new ideas and solutions.

The NEUROTECH CSA will support participation in the workshop with a fellowship of up to a maximum of 1.400 Euro. To apply please follow the instructions here: https://services.ini.uzh.ch/admin/modules/ccnw/apply

Eligible applicants are MSc and PhD students as well as post-doctoral scholars. Priority will be given to applicants that have already had experience with systems/computational neuroscience and/or neuromorphic engineering and/or robotics, and that can best benefit from the fellowship for promoting their research and career.

Fellowship recipients are required to stay at the workshop for its full duration, and are expected to submit a report at the end of the workshop. The report should describe their experience during the workshop, provide feedback and impressions, and present the results of hands-on projects and/or discussion groups they took part in. Fellowship holders and their reports will be featured on the NEUROTECH web portal. We expect the fellowship recipients to acknowledge both the workshop and the NEUROTECH CSA in publications and talks that will hopefully arise from the ideas and work, developed during the workshop.

Application deadline is December 6, 2019. For any inquiries regarding the fellowship, please contact Giacomo Indiveri.
