The honour is given in recognition of Bob Harris’ exceptional contributions to the development of the university, especially in the context of the European University Alliance NeurotechEU project.

Rector Anca Dana Buzoianu presents the award to honorary doctor Robert Harris.

Bob Harris has been Karolinska Institutet’s scientific lead in the NeurotechEU project since its start in 2019.

“I am greatly honoured by rector Anca Dana Buzoianu and her university awarding me this distinction,” says Bob Harris, professor at the Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet and CMM Group Leader. “The point of a university alliance is to help each other and to learn from each other while working together, and I am happy if our Romanian colleagues appreciate my efforts.”

NeurotechEU (the European University of Brain and Technology) is an alliance of eight European universities which aims to build a trans-European network of excellence in brain research and technologies by 2040.
