Research grant from CHIST-ERA and National Science Centre

A grant within the competition Advanced Brain-Computer Interfaces for Novel Interactions (BCI), provided by the CHIST-ERA and National Science Centre has been awarded to the research consortium consisting of:

    1. Dublin University;
    2. University of Bourdeaux;
    3. Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń;
    4. Technical University of Valencia

We are delighted to announce that prof. Veslava Osińska from the Knowledge and Complexity Memory Team is a member of this unique consortium. Thanks to her dedicated work, the IMSErt can pride itself on this European grant. The main goal of the winning project, entitled "BITSCOPE: Brain Integrated Tagging for Socially Curated Online Personalised Experiences", is to construct a new brain-computer interface. This interface will be able to process information about the biological activity of neuronal structures of the human brain in interactions with a real external world and analyze the evolutions of these conditions generated only in the digital, virtual environment. Congratulations and good luck to prof. Osińska and all members of the consortium.
