Professor Sajda Appointed Chair of the IEEE BRAIN Initiative

In late 2015, IEEE created the IEEE Brain Initiative ( with the mission to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration and coordination to advance research, standardization, and development of technologies in neuroscience to help improve the human condition. IEEE is in a unique position to leverage its broad expertise in electronics, communication, sensors, power management, and other technologies to bring an engineering and systems perspective to worldwide activities that are focused on understanding and interfacing with the brain. For example, the IEEE Brain Initiative is coordinating standardization and technology development activities with the US-led Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative and EU-led Human Brain Project, as well as initiatives that are underway or being launched in Japan, Australia, and China.
