The NBS group is part of the FETPROACT CSA - Community building in Neuromorphic Computing Technologies

The NBS group is proud to announce that the group led by Prof. Elisabetta Chicca will be part of the newly granted CSA NeuroTech as part of the H2020 FETPROACT-02-2018 - Community building in Neuromorphic Computing Technologies (NCT). 

Neuromorphic engineering is a ground-breaking approach to design of computing technology that draws inspiration from the powerful and efficient biological neural processing systems. Today's neuromorphic community in Europe is leading the state of the art in this domain. The community counts an increasing number of labs that work on theory, modelling, and implementation of neuromorphic computing systems. The NCT includes both digital and analogue VLSI technologies, memristive devices, photonics, spintronics, magnonics, nanotubes, and other nano-technological solutions.

To enable the uptake of this technology and to match the needs of real-world applications in future products that solve real-world tasks in industry, health-care, assistive systems, robotics, and consumer devices, the consortium aims to create a sustainable communication channel between research labs, industry, general public, and other stakeholders.

Alongside 12 partners from industry and academia across Europe (Switzerland, UK, Germany, France, Belgium, and Italy), the NBS group will assemble and curate a coherent collection of educational resources on all aspects of NCT, share core educational events on NCT, to disseminate NCT curriculum to other communities, and to promote NCT among decision makers.
