Human Movement Sciences, Montpellier (FR) event, May 14-18

Our CREATE network partner EuroMov, incubator for academic-industry partnerships in human movement, is hosting a week-long event May 14-18 in Montpellier, France, for doctoral trainees. Organized by Prof Benoit Bardy (head of Euromov), this Research&Development event will introduce trainees to industries in biomedical technologies; brain-computer interfaces; robotics; and other branches of human movement sciences (with on-site visits). The choice of industry partners is based on the doctoral trainees' CVs.

Funding is available for 4 CREATE trainees (at least $1000) on a first-come, first-served basis; contact the program coordinator to sign up. Full details at
