How it works?
Innovation is a team effort and NeuroChallenge is no exception. During one “hackathon-like” weekend and 48 hours the teams will define and develop their ideas into rock-solid solutions with a help of facilitated innovation process and hard-core mentors.
Although we encourage you to find your soulmates and form a team early on, you do not need to have either a team or specific solution ready before the event. Open mind and a burning heart is enough. On the other hand, if you do already have your dream-team, an idea, or a “hatching” solution that will somehow help solving the Grand Challenge, that’s just superb!
Prior to the NeuroChallenge event a professional Seminar is being organized. The Seminar shall give a scientific perspective to theme and topics of NeuroChallenge 2023. The aim is to provide solid academic background, and also, deeper understanding and clarity on those specific challenges of NeuroChallenge 2023.
