Advances in innovative technologies will depend on the discovery and mastery of novel principles as opposed to boosting existing ones. One approach to answer this challenge is to translate fundamental principles underlying the unsurpassed ability of natural systems, in particular brains, to conquer the challenges of the real world into new technologies
There is a growing research field of Living Machines in Europe, however, uptake of results towards society and industry is still limited. CSN’s mission is to provide a prototype model for the creation of a European accelerator for SME’s in the field of Living Machines.
To advance the future and emerging technologies in the areas of Neuro- and Bioinspired systems, a rapid advance in the training of its future generation of researchers and stakeholders is required. CSN directly contributes by focusing on developing a framework for education in the advanced fields of Neuro- and Bioinspired Systems, Human-Machine Symbiosis, Material Sciences, and energy, Human Condition.
