‘Matchmaking and speed-dating’ brings researchers together.

‘Matchmaking and speed-dating’ brings researchers together.

By Jane Horrell 29 March 2020

A small grouping of neuroscientists has organised a digital seminar including an ‘online dating’ system.

The international research community is finding alternative ways of getting together to present their work, exchange ideas, and make new connections with like-minded people in their area with academic conferences cancelled worldwide due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This week, Dr Dan Goodman and peers through the University of Pennsylvania will likely be hosting neuromatch — a free, web-based “unconference” for neuroscientists.
