The 2nd HBP Education School offers a comprehensive programme covering all aspects of software, hardware, simulation, databasing, robotics and theory relevant to the HBP research programme.

The programme comprises parallel lectures on advanced and basic levels, hands-on tutorials on software tools and neuromorphic hardware systems, practical exercises and evening lectures providing a high level view of the project, computing and ethical aspects of artificial neural systems.

The school offers ample opportunities for scientific discussions between students and faculty during dedicated discussion sessions, tutorials and various social events. All students are expected to present a short lightning talk on their own research work to stimulate this discussion.
