About us

The Swiss Network of Neuroscience, Ethics and Law (SNNEL) is a Swiss-based interdisciplinary network of researchers  working at the intersection between neuroscience, neuroengineering, ethics and law.

The aim of the network is to promote reflection about neuroethical and neurolegal issues, hence to favor responsible innovation in neuroscience and neurotechnology in Switzerland and beyond. This network intends to be a forum for discussion, collaboration and insights for those who are interested in issues at the intersection of neuroscience, ethics and law.
