WELCOME TO THE BRAINSTORMS FESTIVAL!

The BRAINSTORMS FESTIVAL: ​​Two days on business, science and cutting-edge human oriented technology from the top experts of the world.

Why attend?

We are entering a new era of innovation in which Neuroscience and AI are reshaping traditional industries like healthcare, business, and communication. These are fast-paced times where all industries are joining the race. Developing such technologies require a large number of different expertise and an interdisciplinary view of the field.

However too often, the research and business world are evolving in two parallel universes. The Brainstorms festival exactly filters the needs of the industry and businesses, connecting them with researchers. Before the festival, companies have the possibility to communicate their challenges, and workshops with brainstormers will be made around the festival time.
