1st ANDREA Training Course

September 1st - September 2nd, 2014 in Berlin, Germany

We thank all speakers, participants, organizers and sponsors for their valuable contribution the success of the first ANDREA Training Course 2014!

Speakers and organizers of the 1st ANDREA Training Course in Berlin, Germany

Preface

Background of the ANDREA project:

Multichannel electroencephalography (EEG) is a well-established method for investigating the function of the human brain, but, despite continuous advancements in signal amplification and data processing, difficult and error-prone signal acquisition on the head surface is still a major issue limiting its employment in basic and clinical research. The main goal of the ANDREA project is to develop a novel dry electrode EEG system with adjustable cap network provided with an automated sensor positioning mechanism, active pre-amplification and a software toolbox for artifacts removal. The novel technologies address the requirements of high signal quality and reliability, mobility, high patient/subject comfort and long-term use, and will be validated in clinical and non-clinical populations to produce a prototype optimized for broad EEG employment.

More specific information on the ANDREA project can be found on the official project website: www.andreaproject.eu.

Aims of the traning courses: 

The ANDREA training courses are dedicated to the teaching of specific technical/applicative topics and transferable skills, aiming to transfer basic and advanced knowledge in the relevant aspects of the development and validation of the novel EEG technology among all ANDREA partners. The courses will are open also to researchers from outside the consortium.

Thematic Structure:

    The program of the course includes technical lectures on hardware and software developments to implement the novel dry electrode cap system, and two transferable skills lectures on Grant Writing and IPR Issues.

    The teaching of transferable skills will supplement the scientific expertise of the ANDREA staff members, and will mainly regard issues related to the exploitation of technical and analytical research results in a commercial application developmental line, and to research in humans. The transferable skills will be presented in formal sessions, with a lecture followed by a general discussion.

    Main topics of the first ANDREA training course include:

    • Material science
    • Electronics development
    • Design of novel Hardware components

    Focus of transferable skills lectures:

    • Standardization issues
    • Research methodology
