Developing Innovations in Neurotechnology

Neurotechnology can be considered as technology that interacts with the nervous system and has applications in health and beyond. This area of technology is incredibly interdisciplinary, bringing together expertise in areas such as neuroscience, bioelectronic materials, AI and diagnostics. While many innovations are developed for the health sector to diagnose and treat a range of neurological indications, there are an increasing number of technologies being developed for consumer use in areas such as wellbeing, games and the creative industries, as well as interest from the defence sectors.

Innovate UK KTN is hosting an in-person neurotechnology event, with the aim of showcasing some neurotechnology innovations that are being developed in the UK. Join us to hear directly from innovators about their own journey developing technologies that range from implants to wearables. This event aims to bring together innovators working across the sector, including but not limited to academia, industry, healthcare, manufacturing and policy.

About the event

Come along to hear about the latest innovations in neurotechnology, and network with those developing neurotechnologies. Join us for a day of knowledge sharing, connect with others in the field and find potential partners that can support your innovation journey. The agenda will include presentations, pitches and networking. Full agenda TBC.
