SYNCH (a SYnaptically connected brain-silicon Neural Closed-loop Hybrid system), coordinated by Stefano Vassanelli from University of Padova, will enable co-evolution of connectivity and co- processing of information of the two networks, called Memristor. The project is funded by the FET (Future and Emerging Technologies) programme.

FET-Open and FET Proactive are now part of the Enhanced European Innovation Council (EIC) Pilot (specifically the Pathfinder), the new home for deep-tech research and innovation in Horizon 2020, the EU funding programme for research and innovation.
