Berlin Science Week: When the neuroscientist met the hackathon organizer…

By Sylvia Cunningham and Monika Müller-Kroll

For Berlin Science Week, we came up with our own little experiment. We’ve matched two people from different fields that haven’t met before. We want to talk about what they’re working on and perhaps find some common ground.

For this broadcast we paired up Simon Eickhoff, who has a doctorate degree in neuroanatomy and is the director of the Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine at the Forschungszentrum Jülich, and Jessie Li, an organizer for Dorahacks, a hacker community based in China.

Simon Eickhoff is one of the speakers at Helmholtz Horizons – The Digital (R)Evolution in Science on November 6.

Jessie Li will be at the DoraHacks Global Hackathon on November 3 and 4.
