The convergence between engineering and neurobiology brings about new discoveries in the brain as well as innovations for future brain-technologies-interfaces. NBT Berlin will provide an ideal environment to develop new collaborations and meet experts on the fundamentals and real-world applications in the areas of neuroscience and brain technologies. The forum will highlight emerging neurotechnologies for the restoration and enhancement of impaired sensory, motor, and cognitive functions. Focus areas also cover novel engineering tools for elucidating brain function and neurotechnologies, and breakthrough advances in materials, devices, and systems.

The exhibit hall floor will showcase products that are primarily aimed at engineers, technical managers, as well as researchers from academia and industries, who need to know both the technical and practical aspects of new and emerging trends.
