The EPSRC/MRC-funded Close-NIT Network+ aims to connect experts from academia, industry and medicine to address the key challenges facing closed-loop neural interfaces (CNITs).
Funds will be used to support meetings, exchange visits, travel for early career researchers, patient and public dialogues and proof-of-concept research projects addressing six network workstreams and four cross-cutting themes relating to CNITs.
Funding is available for 3 years. We intend to hold an initial kick-off meeting in autumn 2022, prior to a first call for proposals.
Our network will be inclusive, accessible and supportive of all researchers interested in scientific, engineering, clinical and ethical issues around CNITs, regardless of academic status.
