Welcome to the Central and East European
Center for Cognitive Science at NBU!
The Center is a unique place in Central and Eastern Europe which offers a
stimulating and interdisciplinary environment for study and research in the
field of human cognition. It is an international, research-oriented and
student-centered flexible institution that works effectively across
disciplinary boundaries to advance our fundamental understanding of human
mind and to solve problems for the benefit of its surrounding communities and
society at large.
Our most important treasures are human resourses, both faculty members and
students. I am happy to work with highly motivated colleagues who are
insightful researchers as well as enthusiastic teachers. This unique team of
psychologists, neuroscientists, computer scientists, linguists,
anthropologists, and philosophers would be a fortune for every cognitive
science center in the world. They work really hard, cooperate on
interdisciplinary research projects, and are dedicated teachers and
supervisors. Their enthusiasm is shared by the students and we often hear
from our visiting professors that these are the most highly motivated
students that they have ever met. This lucky combination of motivated staff
and students makes the success of the Center. The people at the Center have
demonstrated that even when the economic conditions are difficult if we do
believe in what we are doing and work hard our dreams come true!
I invite you to visit our
Web site to learn about our academic programs, research endeavors and
university life in general. I also invite you to visit NBU personally, to
visit our annual Summer Schools, so you
can learn more about the Center first-hand and get a sense of how friendly,
exciting and beautiful this place really is.
