7. BrainCare: The future of epilepsy treatment by Project Researcher Andrei Jakab,

The event schedule can be viewed here.

The aim of the seminar was to make new research projects more visible and let them have more impact on the community of researchers, share experiences for funding applications, and let students and researchers know about possible openings in these projects. Duration of each talk was approximately 30 minutes, including questions. The talk contents were about the aims and goals of the project, what novel results are expected, and what is their expected impact on society. Especially in case of EU projects, tips on what made the project application stand out, what are the lessons learned, and good practices while preparing the application were discussed. TUT research liaison officers told about the general procedure of preparing EU projects.
