BCI & Neurotech Masterclass Ohio 1.0 | g.tec medical engineering GmbH


February 22, 2022 (Eastern Time, GMT-4)

Simply turn on your PC and get direct access to the most renowned national institutions and scientists in Ohio.


Neurotechnologies are becoming part of our daily lives. Without us noticing, they start to pop up in devices that we already use or that we hope to be able to use in a near future. This phenomenon is nothing exclusive of other countries. Also in Ohio, we have several labs striving to find new ways to adapt the science and knowledge acquired through the past decades in order to make a difference in the global market.

On February 22, 2022 there will be the first BCI & Neurotech Masterclass. g.tec has invited the most accomplished researchers to present you the best of R&D that is currently happening in Ohio. Do not miss this chance to learn new and future applications of brain-computer interfaces, acquire the know-how and techniques of our speakers and participate in the biggest event of this kind.
