The International Annual BCI-Research 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.
We have a vital interest in promoting excellence in the field of BCI. Achieving our goal to make BCIs more powerful, more intelligent and more applicable for patients’ and caregivers’ everyday lives strongly relies on a creative research community worldwide.
The Annual BCI Research Award allows us to look back at highlights of BCI research in 20 years and to see how the field changed.
– Dr. Christoph Guger, Chair of the BCI Award Foundation.
