As part of its dissemination activities, NERRI took part in the 2016 IBRO Budapest Workshop, a top neuro-science event in Europe. CEU CELAB, a NERRI partner prepared a poster introducing the project and summarizing its main outputs. The idea of RRI and the results of the Europe-wide public engagement efforts of NERRI received considerable attention from the neuro-science community present at the workshop.
NERRI was also represented at the satellite even of the IBRO Budapest Workshop, a one-day workshop for doctoral researchers in neuro-science (HUDOC). The mini version of the poster was presented to a group of PhD students in the poster session of the workshop which initiated a lively debate on the responsibility of researchers at the beginning of their scientific careers.
The main dissemination event organized by CEU CELAB has been an international panel discussion about "Neuro-Enhancement Policies for the Future", held in Budapest on February 5th, with participants of the NERRI project: Agnes Allansdottir (Toscana Life Sciences), Imre Bárd (LSE), Rui Vieira da Cunha (University of Porto), Judit Sándor (CEU), Márton Varju (CEU), Faculty, Students and Invited Guests.
Should human capacities be enhanced in academic work? Should the law develop bright-line rules for regulating the access to these technologies? What will be the future of enhancemnet tools? The discussion was followed by a reception and a demonstration.
