I am superhappy to announce I have been awarded with Veni funding from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for my proposal "Bridging the gap between ethics and neurotechnology - the case of Brain-Computer Interfacing". This project will start at the end of 2011 and run until 2015. Below is a short description for the public:
