During the summer of 2020, Karolinska Institutet (KI) became one of five Swedish universities to be granted funding from the European Commission within the EU's initiative for European universities. KI, together with eight other European universities, is part of "NeurotechEU - The European University of Brain and Technology".

André Fishan, was appointed scientific coordinator for the work package focusing on Neurotech2040 that is KI’s responsibility within the alliance.

The project leaders for the central team at KI are Ylva Olsson and Maria Olsson, International Office.

“We look forward to being a part of this exciting European collaborative project and hope that many at KI will want to participate in NeurotechEU. Here we have an opportunity to influence the future education and research arena within the EU. Feel free to contact us for more information! ”

NeurotechEU is part of the EU's three-year pilot initiative for  European Universities and is one of 41 alliances that have been granted funding for their cooperation. The aim is to create alliances between European universities with the stated goal of trying out new forms of educational and research collaborations and thereby strengthening the international competitiveness of the European university system. In addition to the eight European universities that are part of NeurotechEU, the collaboration is also based on a large number of external parties that collaborate in the field of neuroscience and related technology.
