In the last few years, advancements in neurotechnology have sparked the admiration and concern of the international community. Neurotechnology can help scientists understand how the brain works but can also alter the mind. As read-out and write-in neurotechnology reaches unseen maturity levels – including commercialisation – it is time to think about how neurotechnology and related AI tools may affect fundamental rights.
This hybrid Policy Dialogue will reflect on the need to update Europe’s regulatory framework to cope with the challenges of advanced neurotechnology, including the threats posed to the right to privacy and non-discrimination.

The panel discussion will be preceded by a welcome coffee and will be followed by a light standing lunch.
Participation is open to EPC members only, the media and EU officials
