Dear all,


>From Bitbrain we pleased to announce that *Tobii Pro* and *Psychology
Software Tools* are joining our *Call for Research Projects* to provide
additional research solutions.

In addition to the hardware and software provided by Bitbrain, Psychology
Software Tools and Tobii Pro have kindly offered to complete our offering
with their solutions. Their contribution will be as follows:

   - *Psychology Software Tools*: E-Prime Licenses for up to two projects
   that need comprehensive stimulus presentation.
   - *Tobii Pro:* Up to two projects may choose between the Tobii Pro
   Fusion 250 Hz remote eye tracking system or the Tobii Pro Glasses 3 50 Hz.
   In addition, a one year access to the Tobii Pro Lab software will be
   granted, to ensure successful analysis of the eye tracking data.

Accordingly, the awards comprise up to *150K€ **in equipment and software
licenses of Bitbrain, plus Psychology Software Tools and Tobii Pro selected
solutions* (more info below), for research projects in the areas of *human
behavior research *and *brain-computer interfaces*. The deadline for
submissions is

Call for Research Projects



*Aim of the Call*

This year has been unexpectedly complicated for all of us. We have had an
ongoing threat to public health with a strong impact on economic activity
in every country and organization. Scientific endeavors have been delayed
in most research fields, and many research conferences and symposiums have
been postponed or canceled. The aim of this call is to catalyze and
mobilize research in human behavior and brain-computer interfaces during
this difficult time, by supporting outstanding research projects for 2
years of duration starting in 2021. This is our way of giving back to the
scientific community and helping research projects start-up in the wake of
COVID 19. Bitbrain's mission is to boost real-world research and real-life
applications that enhance people's lives. For this reason, we particularly
welcome project proposals from academia or research institutions that are
exploring neuroscience research in real-world settings.



*The Awards*

*This initiative awards projects with up 150K€ in equipment and software
licenses of Bitbrain, plus Psychology Software Tools and Tobii Pro selected
solutions (see below or in our website).*

Applicants should list all the equipment necessary to successfully carry
out their research project proposal, selecting from these options, and
irrespective of the cost:

   - *Bitbrain equipment:* Systems specifically designed to facilitate
   research in real-world settings and include high-tech EEG brain sensing
   devices and 35+ complementary monitoring technologies (GSR, BVP, ExG, etc),
   as well as Bitbrain's software solutions for synchronized multimodal data
   acquisition and analysis. The equipment will belong to the awarded
   institutions once the project is completed, but they are free to use it for
   other types of research.
   - *Psychology Software Tools*: E-Prime Licenses for projects that need
   stimulus presentation.
   - *Tobii Pro:* Up to two of the winning projects may choose between
   the Tobii Pro Fusion 250 Hz remote eye tracking system or the Tobii Pro
   Glasses 3 50 Hz. In addition, a one year access to the Tobii Pro
   Lab software will be granted, to ensure successful analysis of the eye
   tracking related parts of the project.

*Call topics*

   1. *Topic 1: Human Behavior Research:* We are looking for projects that
   expand the understanding of human behavior using multimodal approaches,
   preferably in ecological and natural conditions. The research includes, but
   is not limited to, cognitive sciences, clinical research, education,
   developmental psychology, human performance, UX or human factors,
   neuroeconomics, hyperscanning, neuroaesthetics, etc.

   2. *Topic 2: Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI):* We are looking for
   projects that expand the introduction or usage of brain-computer interfaces
   in ecological and natural conditions. Research project proposals should
   focus on the application of brain-computer interfaces in real-world
   scenarios, in areas such as immersive environments, neurorehabilitation,
   neuroadaptive technologies, hyperscanning, neuroprosthetics, etc
