Brain Hack Global – Beijing

Brainhack is a unique conference that convenes researchers from across the globe and a myriad of disciplines to work together on innovative projects related to neuroscience (see an instance of the intro video on Brain Hack Vienna 2016). Year after year, global Brainhack events have brought together researchers to participate in open collaboration, and regional Brainhack events keep the momentum going throughout the year. During the conference, you can share ideas, build your projects, meet the community and learn tools. This local conference in Beijing is part of the Brain Hack Global 2018.
