Join us for the FENS Forum 2024 inaugural Neuroethics Hackathon supported by the Dana Foundation and designed and facilitated by the Institute of Neuroethics!

The focus will be on ethical futures in neuroAI. Whether you’re an active neuroscience researcher with a penchant for ethical inquiry

or simply have a desire to ensure that neuroscience research contributes to the creation of better society, you are invited to apply to participate in this unique event.

If selected, you and a small group of peers will be put in the driver’s seat to address a series of trials and questions designed to raise awareness and promote reflection on how to ensure more responsible futures for potential advances in AI-powered neuroscience. As part of this inaugural cohort, you will have the chance to be part of a community that values ethical hacking as a force for positive change.

Hackathon participation will include a 1.5-hour virtual workshop, two weeks before the FENS Forum to receive details and group assignments. The exact timing of the workshop will be based on the time zones of selected participants. The 4-hour Hackathon event will take place on 25 June 2024, 10:00-14:00 CEST.
