EIC funds development of optical CI

International cooperation project “OptoWavePro” coordinated by the University Medical Center Göttingen (UMG) receives 2.5 million euros over a period of three years from the European Innovation Council’s “EIC Transition” funding programme for the development of the optical cochlear implant to restore hearing in humans.
The “OptoWavePro” project is coordinated by MBExC spokesperson Prof. Dr. Tobias Moser, Director of the Institute for Auditory Neuroscience at the UMG and co-founder of OptoGenTech, and builds on his previous work on the development of the optical cochlear implant.
