What are citizen needs, concerns and wishes for the digitalization of brain science? What would they like researchers to know about working with citizen data? What ethical and social needs should brain researchers keep in mind when developing neurotechnologies? Lise Bitsch presented her work leading public engagement initiatives in the Human Brain Project to engage diverse stakeholders to identify priorities, concerns, and potential benefits of emerging digital technologies. These are relevant both for scientific projects and for governance of AI in society.
In conjunction with the 7th CCBIO Symposium Omid Farokzhad will deliver a Volterra lecture Tuesday May 14th titled "Perspectives on how to Translate Biomedical Research to Products and Cures" The lecture is held at Solstrand Hotel&Bad near Bergen and is open for everyone.
Combining computational and experimental approaches, MIT-Professor Christopher Voigt has made outstanding contributions to the fields of synthetic biology and biological engineering. In the beginning of May he guests our Volterra Lecture Series in Oslo, Trondheim and Bergen, to offer his approach on programming cells.

ERASysAPP workshop combined with the DLN Volterra lecture.
Prof Nikolas Rose will focus on how modern neuroscience and attention towards brain function and mental health changes how we perceive ourselves
The centre welcomes Professor Natasa Pruzlj of Biomedical Data Science at UCL to give her Volterra lecture on Friday 28 September at NTNU. She will discuss linking heterogeneous data in the biomedical domain.
Welcome to the first competence sharing network meeting “Methodologies for Digital Life”, 6. October in the centre of Bergen. Transdisciplinarity is an underlying approach of the centre and the meeting is intended for researchers from different disciplines to meet and discuss novel methodological approaches in the field of digital biotechnology. The meeting is free to attend and open for all interested participants.
Professor Jerome S. Engel is an internationally recognized expert on innovation, entrepreneurship, and venture capital, lecturing and advising business and government leaders around the world. Most recently he has focused on lean innovation entrepreneurship and developing innovation ecosystems globally. In the current event, he will share his insights on how this can be part of innovation in biology, health care and life science.
The Centre for Digital Life Norway welcomes all interested to a public lecture on the role of neuroscience for the future of psychiatry by the prominent British sociologist Nikolas Rose. He will address questions such as: Where does the current scientific and popular attention to the human brain come from? Does it change how we understand ourselves? And where are the social sciences and humanities in all of this?
Professor Bonnie Berger is the Simons Professor of Mathematics at MIT, holds a joint appointment in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and serves as head of Computation and Biology group at MIT's Computer Science and AI Lab. Her recent work focuses on designing algorithms to gain biological insights from advances in automated data collection and the subsequent large data sets drawn from them. She works on a diverse set of problems, including Compressive Genomics, Network Inference, Structural Bioinformatics, Genomic Privacy, and Medical Genomics. Additionally, she collaborates closely with biologists in order to design experiments to maximally leverage the power of computation for biological explorations.
The invited Volterra Lecture at UiT co-hosted by DigiBiotics is given by Prof Inger Sandlie who successfully have combined the role as innovator and researcher.
Together with the Double Intraperitoneal Artificial Pancreas project the Centre welcomes Professor Francis J. Doyle III, Dean of John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), Harvard University, and scholar in chemical engineering to present his latest work on testing algorithms in clinical settings for an artificial pancreas and the future technology for the millions of individuals who are affected by Type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Prof Doyle has devoted his research to understand and characterize biological systems by a systems engineering approach, contributing to the fields of systems biology and functional biomedical control, while combining computational and experimental work.
