JOINT LAB MEETING: HERMES & IN-FET
On March 30th a joint lab online meeting was organized by HERMES_FET and IN-FET project coordinators Michele Giugliano (SISSA) and Gabriella Panuccio (IIT): representatives from both consortia presented each task, shared their insights and debated their novel approaches to cure epilepsy and brain disorders.
“Almost all people with epilepsy will need to stay on medical therapy to minimize the probability of having a seizure. With HERMES and IN-FET we are trying to make a difference to heal epilepsy rather than treating it.”
HERMES-FET project coordinator Gabriella Panuccio
an interview to the HERMES coordinator
An interview with Gabriella Panuccio, coordinator of the IIT research line “Enhanced Regenerative Medicine” was published in March 2021 for the new column Principal Investigator Profiles introducing the 79 PIs at IIT – Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia..

Unimore - Symbols Magazine
The latest edition of "Symbols" magazine, published by the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia - UNIMORE, presents HERMES among some other ongoing EU funded research projects in the Dept. of Biomedical, Metabolic and Neuroscience Sciences - Physiology and Neuroscience. Ample space is dedicated to HERMES with an exhaustive introduction of the project concept and mission, a description of the consortium members, and two questions about the biohybrid systems for brain regeneration that is the core investigation in HERMES vision of novel approaches to cure the disabled brain.
Article also talks about UNIMORE ’s task within the consortium...
INTEL Neuromorphic Research Community
HERMES project partners from Aarhus University participated in the Intel Neuromorphic Research Community (Intel NRC) networking meeting presenting their tasks in the project.
Future Tech Week 2019
Future Tech Week is an initiative of the European Innovation Council Pathfinder.
It is a unique opportunity to present the Future and Emerging Technologies and the ideas behind.
On Saturday August 31st another outreach and fundraising event was organized by the NEUROSpritz association, at Priamar Fortress in Savona, Italy. Our project coordinator Gabriella Panuccio was invited to talk about the HERMES project and biohybrid brain regeneration to the public.
NEUROSpritz is a non-profit science-oriented organization born with the goal of reaching out to the public about the Neurosciences. It organizes theme evenings where topics of braod interest and scientific news are presented in an engaging atmosphere by invited experts in the field. It also organizes fundraising events to support scientific research for neurodegenerative disorders.
Pint of Science
On May 20th 2019 our coordinator Gabriella Panuccio together with co-PI Gemma Palazzolo introduced the concepts of enhanced regenerative medicine in an informal outreach setting: Pint of Science (Italian chapter).
Pint of Science is a global Science festival where scientists of any discipline communicate and discuss about their latest research with a non-scientific audience in an informal setting, with the aim of making Science accessible to anyone. Events are held in pubs, where, for the price of a beer, everyone may attend the event and directly engage with the scientists presenting their work in simple words.
Neuroscience day at Aarhus University
At Neuroscience day, the project partners gave an overview of the HERMES project and presented the envisioned approach elaborated by Aarhus University for recording signal from the brain to be implemented in Hardware and integrated with the spiking neural network chip.
99 universities and research centers in 15 countries around the world held the eleventh edition of UniStem Day the journey in research starting from stem cells.
On Friday 15 March, scientists from the University of Verona set up the largest scientific dissemination event dedicated to high school students. The HERMES researchers team attended this important event.
The Kick Off Meeting of HERMES project was held in Rome. During the 3 days meeting each project partner has presented its contribution to the project. The consortium is presented by different profiles: biotechnologists, biologists, medical doctors, electrical and computer engineers, business consultants, ethics and policy experts, specialists in Artificial Intelligence etc.
