NEUROTECH offers 10 fellowships to support scholars attending the CapoCaccia 2019 Cognitive Neuromorphic Engineering Workshop (Apr 23 - May 04, 2019).

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.

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.


How to apply

To apply for a fellowship, send an Email to with a single pdf that includes a one-page CV and one-page motivation letter that addresses the following three points:

  1. Why would the workshop be interesting for you?
  2. Why would people in the workshop be interested in having you attend?
  3. What hands-on project or discussion group would you like to organize or participate in?

Application deadline is February 3, 2019.

The selection committee’s decision will be announced by February 28, 2019.

Fellowship recipients are required to submit a report about their experience during the workshop, in particular about 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.

For any inquiries regarding the fellowship, please contact Yulia Sandamirskaya.
