Jülich excursion 17-05-2018
17 May @ 12:45 - 18:30€2
Jülich conducts research to provide comprehensive solutions to the grand challenges facing society in the fields of energy and environment, information and brain research. Their aim is to lay the foundation for the key technologies of tomorrow.
Learn all about the fascinating world of science by taking a guided tour. Find out how our more than 5,600 employees work towards providing comprehensive solutions to the challenges facing society in the fields of energy & environment and information & the brain. Together with
the visitor guides, discover how they lay the foundations for future key technologies on their green campus situated in the middle of a forest.
Eir is going to visit Jülich’s Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine.
The Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine addresses under the program “Decoding the Human Brain” human brain organization on its different temporal and spatial scales. Due to the complexity of the brain and its extensive changes during the life span and in neuropsychiatric disorders, this can only be achieved by using advanced neuroimaging techniques and high-performance computing. Basic neuroscience goes hand in hand with modeling/simulation to face the challenges Brain Complexity and Big Data Analytics and to develop robust control techniques. This knowledge enables translational medicine to understand, diagnose and cure neurological and mental disorders, which become increasingly relevant in an aging society.
