The Brain Conferences: Computational Neuroscience of Prediction

Organised by FENS ( (the major neuroscience association in Europe) in collaboration with The Brain Prize, the Brain Conferences establish a series of high-level meetings on neuroscience in Europe.

Prediction is a pervasive requirement for organisms to be able to prepare for and adapt to complex, changing and challenging environments. Prediction is affected by cognitive and computational factors including limited capacity attention, risk and uncertainty, and affective biases; and it is the topic of a wealth of neuroscience experiments ranging from behavioural studies to powerful new approaches such as optogenetics. In this Brain Conference, we will examine the problems and prospects for prediction from the combined perspectives of experimental and theoretical neuroscience, psychology and economics.

On 17 October EUROGIA2020, the EUREKA Cluster for low carbon energy technologies, is organising an Information and Project Pitch Session in Madrid, Spain under the auspices of Centre for Development of Industrial Technologies. EUROGIA2020 is launching new project call in 5 low carbon sector areas: Solar PV, CSP wind, geothermal and ocean in collaboration with the European Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan. This event aims to generate project ideas in the above - mentioned 5 low carbon sectors and help good quality transnational projects access funds in EUREKA Member and Associated Countries.
