The BCI-NE lab was founded in 2004 and is now one of the largest in the world and one of the best for non-invasive interfaces and cognitive augmentation.
The lab has recently acquired a new home spanning 190m² and has state-of-the-art facilities. These include:
For nearly two decades now, the lab has produced highly visible internationally leading research, peer reviewed publications, and a frequent media presence. We collaborate with international (e.g., MIT, NASA JPL, ESA, Harvard, UCB, UCS, NYU, etc.) and national (e.g., Oxford, Imperial, UCL) partners. The lab has received funding from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), US Department of Defense (DoD), EPSRC, EU, and many others, having attracted awards worth £4.6M in the last 5 years only.
Thanks to this, since its inception, it has grown to become one of the four pillars of the University of Essex School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, which is in itself one of the largest in the UK.
