With this conference we hope to stimulate interdisciplinary research for enhancing knowledge in and application of neuroscience. We define convergence as the merging of distinct technologies, processing disciplines, or devices into a unified whole to create new scientific approaches and opportunities. This involves the integration of various fields of study – particularly engineering, physical sciences, and life sciences."
State Secretary Ragnhild Setsaas, Ministry of Education and Research
