The International BCI Award, endowed with 6,000 USD, is one of the top accolades in BCI research. The Award was created to recognize outstanding and innovative research in the field of Brain-Computer Interfaces. The Award is open to any brain-computer interface research worldwide and 12 projects are nominated before the winner is announced.
The BCI Award is a very prestigious prize that attracts leading groups developing neural prostheses. I have seen a steady increase in the award’s popularity and the quality of submitted projects. Importantly, nominated projects are presented in an annual book series, which presents a collection of the best BCI studies conducted each year.
I foresee that the BCI Award will become an equivalent of a Nobel prize in the field of brain interfaces, and it will define the key directions in this growing research field.
