For further inquiries please feel also free to contact the Education

Programme Office directly.

 

The HBP Curriculum on Interdisciplinary Brain Science offers web-based distance learning courses and face-to-face workshops that provide basic lessons in the HBP core fields neuroscience, medicine, cognitive systems and ICT as well as the complementary subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights.

The courses are open to the whole scientific community, regardless of affiliation with the HBP, but especially target the following groups:
• Master‘s students already carrying out research
• PhD students
• Researchers who have received their doctoral degree within the past three years at the time of their application for training

Video lectures are publicly available. Each online lecture is supplemented by a discussion forum and additional learning material for each course. 

By combining the online course with participation in an EBRAINS Workshops event ECTS credits can be awarded.
