Who We Are

The beginning of the story begins in Paris, where we did our research master’s degree in Cognitive Science. The atmosphere was prone to a bunch of endless discussions, we could never have imagined talking about so many different subjects. Everyone had a singular background and we formed a group to talk about consciousness and its related subjects and to confront divergent points of view: real thrilling moments!

Now graduated and scattered around the world (bonus: with the sanitary situation, everyone is stuck at home), we want to recreate the environment we miss through this seminar. Join us to make this event instructive!
