CorTec Research & Development

CorTec’s activites in research and development are based on long-standing cooperations with neuroscientists, engineers, and physicians at at the University of Freiburg and its Medical Center.
For over a decade these cooperations have been supported by public funding.

Cluster of Excellence BrainLinks-BrainTools

In the last round of the federal Excellence Initiative the University of Freiburg was awarded the Cluster of Excellence BrainLinks-BrainTools. The cluster unites various interdisciplinary projects at the University and the University Medical Center. CorTec contributes to a number of projects in the cluster.

Bernstein Network Computational Neruoscience

Since 2004, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF) is funding neuroscientific research in Germany with the National Bernstein Network. In this framework top neuroscience research centers in Germany are interconnected. At the University of Freiburg, the Bernstein Center (BCF) coordinates the respective research activities and also contributes to the the Cluster of Excellence BrainLinks-BrainTools.

Company-based Research & Development Projects

CorTec is supported by several funding projects. Among the involvement in other projects CorTec itself coordinates the project Motor-BIC funded by the BMBF. In this project the CorTec Brain Interchange implant system is prepared for clinical applications in motor disabilities.

Two BMBF-funded projects are already completed.

R & D Projects

Research and development are the focus of our work.

In several funded projects, we work closely together with our partners to promote and deploy the technology developed by us.

Partners in R & D

We conduct our research and develop new technologies within a strong network of partners at universities, hospitals, and in the industry.


We believe that scientific findings are the basis of innovation.

We base our developmental work on current global research as well as on our own findings.
