OBJECTIVES

  • Neuromorphic engineering is a ground-breaking approach to designing computing technology that draws inspiration from powerful, efficient biological neural processing systems. Neuromorphic devices are able to carry out sensing, processing and motor control strategies based on ultra-low power performance. 

  • Today’s neuromorphic community in Europe is leading the state of the art in this domain. It boasts ever more laboratories working on the theory, modelling and implementation of neuromorphic computing systems implementing conventional VLSI technologies, emerging memristive devices, photonics, spin-based and other nano-technological solutions.

  • Robust, sustainable communication between research laboratories and stakeholders is required to ensure technological uptake and meet the needs of real world applications in future task solving products in industry,
    healthcare, assistive systems and consumer devices.

  • NEUROTECH focuses on, (1) creating a comprehensive online platform integrating data on all parties involved, reflecting the state of the art and showcasing latest technological progress to strengthen the NCT community and enhance its impact and visibility, (2) actively reaching out to industrial stakeholders to secure their involvement in shaping future research and to facilitate uptake of existing technology, (3) promoting public interest in NCT by showcasing key technologies and, (4) designing educational resources in this interdisciplinary field to target students of different backgrounds.

  • Coordination and Support Action (CSA) will be the link to consolidation and dissemination of state-of-the-art
    neuromorphic technology, to creating a roadmap for future progress to unleash the power of NCT in future smart technologies.
