The Brain Products MoBI Award is a biennially presented award and recognizes excellence in the field of Mobile Brain/Body Imaging (MoBI) research. Our aim is to benefit the MoBI community and to motivate scientists who bring EEG out of the lab and into the “real world”.

In 2024 the prize will be awarded for the 5th time. The winners of the 2024 edition will be presented at the International Mobile Brain/Body Imaging Conference 2024 (in Piran, Slovenia | June 2–5, 2024). The 1st prize winner, will also have the opportunity to give a talk on their research during a dedicated session at the conference on June 5, 2024.


Accepted Submissions & Criteria

→ Only MoBI papers published after January 1, 2021 or accepted for publication by now may be submitted.
→ MoBI papers submitted for previous editions of the MoBI Award cannot be submitted again.
→ The paper must be experimental in nature and utilize EEG methodology (i.e., no theoretical or opinion/review paper).
→ Only first authors may submit a paper and the CV of the first author has to be included. The submitter will receive the prize.
→ Only one submission per person will be accepted.
Submission deadline is February 1, 2024.

Contributions from the following MoBI research fields will be accepted, for example,

→ MoBI in sports
→ MoBI in neuroadaptive technology
→ MoBI in human factors, neuroergonomics, and neuroaesthetics
→ MoBI in rehabilitation
→ MoBI in classic experimental paradigms outside the lab
→ MoBI in social psychology
→ MoBI in educational psychology

An independent jury consisting of experts in the MoBI field will judge the projects. Amongst other criteria, judgement will be based on the following: (1) scientific quality, (2) innovation/impact, and (3) match for mobile EEG and the MoBI field.


1st Prize Mobile 32-channel EEG system + 500 Euro
2nd Prize Mobile 16-channel EEG system
3rd Prize Mobile 8-channel EEG system

*All prizes include: LiveAmp EEG amplifier, cap with electrodes, and software package.
