Blogposts strongly believes in the power of open science, especially for small but specialistic fields such as that of Neurosurgery.

In a series of monthly blogposts, OpenNeurosurgery invites scientists, clinicians and engineers at different stages in their career to give the community their perspective on the future of Neurosurgery and the importance of open science. We hope these blogposts ignite fruitful discussions and even inspire new contacts and collaborations. 

Do you have an idea for a blogpost? Do you have a response or comment to a previous blogpost? Or would you like to nominate someone for the next invited blogpost? Feel free to contact us!

Dr. Ir. Vasiliki (Vasso) Giagka, Assistant Professor of Bioelectronics, explains why neuro-technology can only truly flourish in a multidisciplinary context.

 “For all these disciplines to work together constructively and effectively, we must create environments and possibilities for the different disciplines to get exposed to the other side. Not only by talking, but by doing.”
