The Future of Brain/Neural Computer Interaction: Horizon 2020

The European Commission's Framework Programme 7 as created a Coordination and Support Action (CSA) called BNCI Horizon 2020. This project aims to foster communication and collaboration among stakeholders in the field of BCIs.

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) have become a popular topic for research in recent years. A BCI is a communication device which allows people to control applications through direct measures of their brain activity. A BNCI (brain/neuronal computer interaction) system extends a BCI by including other physiological measures such as muscle or eye movement signals. 

The number of BCI research groups around the world, peer-reviewed journal articles, conference abstracts, and attendance at relevant conferences are indicators of the rapid growth of this field. With dozens of companies and research groups actively participating in the development of BCIs and related technologies, collaboration, a common terminology, and a clear roadmap have become important topics.
