HBP CURRICULUM ONLINE COURSES
The HBP Curriculum Online Courses include basic lessons in the HBP core fields neuroscience, medicine and ICT as well as lectures on the complementary subjects of ethics and intellectual property rights. The videos are publicly available throughout the year. A discussion forum and additional learning material is available for each online lecture.
Currently, six courses are offered on the following topics:
- ICT for non-specialists
- Neurobiology for non-specialists
- Brain medicine for non-specialists
- Cognitive systems for non-specialists
- Research, ethics and societal impact
- IPR, translation and exploitation of research
Each online course is completed by an annual face-to-face workshop.
The courses address early career researchers who want to gain knowledge outside their area of specialisation or who are interested in learning about ethical challenges or intellectual property rights.
