International Summer School of Neuroengineering

The 2024 edition is dedicated to 'Neuroengineering for health and disease: a multi-scale approach'.
Three macro-subjects – Neuroscience, Technology, and Computation – will be at the forefront, promising a comprehensive exploration of the field's vast potential.

The school is named after the visionary Prof. Massimo Grattarola, who was a pioneer in the fields of neuroengineering and bioelectronics and prematurely passed away in 2002. This biennial summer school serves as a hub for experts, students, and young researchers.
