Receiving funding for research is difficult and even more difficult when it comes to securing it for eye tracking research. Tobii Pro has experience helping researchers receive these treasured awards. In our upcoming webinar, Dr. Sheila Achermann, Research Scientist at Tobii Pro, will talk about how Tobii Pro helps researchers in the grant application process. Together with Dr. Philipp Deindl, senior physician and researcher at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf and Dr. Michael Wagner, neonatal fellow and researcher at the Medical University of Vienna, we will share and discuss experiences, insights, and advice on how to successfully incorporate eye tracking into your proposal.
