Welcome to participate in the virtual opening of NeurotechEU - a European University!
Karolinska Institutet is one of eight universities in NeurotechEU- The European University of Brain and Technology.
NeurotechEU is part of the European Union’s three-year pilot initiative “European Universities”. The NeurotechEU will involve all groups within KI: students on undergraduate and master level, doctoral students, teachers, researchers, administrative staff and management. Take the opportunity to be part of this grand online event open to all students and staff at KI!

By combining his insightful clinical observations with his original pathological studies, his enquiring mind established links that are still astonishing 400 years on.
