INI's people in October 2013, in front of building 55 on the Irchel Campus
The Institute of Neuroinformatics (INI) is located on beautiful Irchel campus of the University of Zurich.
Located on the outskirts of the city of Zurich, the Irchel Campus hosts University as well as a few ETH institutes.
The institute’s name reveals its mission: to study and understand the principles of neural computation, and to implement these principles in electronic devices.
Students have their desks in large, open spaces that encourage interactions across research groups and promote the institute’s social life.
Students have their own desks, each equipped with a desktop computer.
One of INI's main event is its weekly lab meeting, which is attended by
all of INI's members.
Along with several top-modern neurobiology laboratories, INI also has infrastructure to design and develop neuromorphic electronic devices.
INI research groups meet regularly to discuss progress, exchange ideas and learn about other people’s work.
The weekly colloquium organized by INI attracts prominent speakers to Zurich.
In addition to its contribution to science and higher education, INI also participates in public events that aim to show and explain modern science to the general public.
