NeuroTech-NL is proud to have been awarded several large scale public-private partnership grants to conduct projects in the areas of implantable neurotechnology. These interwoven projects address multiple neurological and applications simultaneously.
The €14.3M “INTENSE” project is funded by an NWO Crossover grant and is a full R&D program surrounding implantable hardware and software (AI) solutions for the blind, the deaf, and those suffering from epilepsy or the inability to communicate; at the same time considering the ethics and user experiences with the new technologies. Sister project “NeuraViPeR” brings our ambitions surrounding hardware and software developments to the European level with international partners supported by a €4M FET-Open grant and “TEMPORAL” further develops the software for improved hearing for cochlear implant wearers. Our “Nestor” project from NWO Applied and Engineering Science (AES) kick-started our consortium surrounding technological combinations of AI solutions with implantable neural technology, and “DAREPLANE” builds an experimental platform for closed-loop adaptive neurostimulation.
In May 2022 we received a prestigious Gravitation award for €21.9M, which allows us to develop the next generation of brain interfacing methodologies to advance future neuroscience knowledge and patient applications.
