Brain Mind Institute Affiliations

EPFL Synapsy Center

The EPFL Synapsy Center for Neuroscience and Mental Health Research integrates mental health-related research at EPFL. The center serves as a node to connect mental health researchers with students, interested stakeholders and the public. Arising from the National Competence Center of Research (NCCR) ‘Synapsy’ project, the EPFL Synapsy center aims to raise awareness of mental health problems at EPFL and in our local community, plus promote multidisciplinary research towards novel mental health treatments.

International Partnerships

The Brain Mind Institute has established partnerships with some of the leading neuro research centers in Europe, USA and Asia, to promote and strengthen international collaborations and expand the training opportunities for EPFL students and scientists.

The Bertarelli Program in Translational Neuroscience and Neuroengineering is a joint initiative by Harvard University Medical School (HMS) and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) to push basic discoveries in biological mechanisms in neuroscience towards translational and clinical impact by creating stronger ties between basic neuroscientists, engineers and clinicians.

The Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour and the Brain Mind Institute collaborate to open opportunities and strengthen ties in research and training of both institutions, including collaborative grant applications, participation in the Radboud Excellence Initiative, and Master / PhD student exchange programs.

The Edmond & Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem partners with the Brain Mind Institute through an agreement to foster bilateral scientific cooperation in the field of brain research.

The GIN – Grenoble Institut Neuroscience is integrated into the Health Sciences Campus of Grenoble with a research focus on physiological processes and pathologies of the nervous system. The aim of our partnership is to promote collaborations and to expand training opportunities for master and PhD students.
