Having completed his medical exams, he obtained his doctorate from the Technical University Munich in 1987. Between 1987 and 1995 he worked as a post-doctoral fellow with Wolf Singer at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research, Frankfurt, Germany. From 1996 to 2000, Engel headed a research group at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research which was funded by the Heisenberg Program of the German Research Foundation (DFG). Between fall 1997 and summer 1998, he was also affiliated as a Daimler-Benz Fellow to the Berlin Institute for Advanced Study. From 2000 to 2002, he worked at the Jülich Research Centre as head of the Cellular Neurobiology Group at the Institute for Medicine. In 2002, he was appointed to the Chair of Neurophysiology at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf. Engel is a member of the Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg. Since 2011, he is the coordinator of Collaborative Research Centre SFB 936 „Multi-Site Communication in the Brain“ (with Christian Gerloff, Dept. of Neurology, UKE).

Peter König is a professor of neurobiopsychology at the Institute of Cognitive Science at the University of Osnabrück in Germany. He is the director of the Neurobiopsychology Lab, which focuses on multisensory integration and sensorimotor coupling. Over the last 20 years, Prof. König and his co-workers have made key contributions to the field at the intersection of cognitive science, neuroscience and computational neuroscience. These resulted in more than 160 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and 16.000 citations. His work has brought about 2 spin-off companies: ‘‘WhiteMatter Labs GmbH’’ (2009) and the ‘‘feelSpace GmbH’’ (2015). For further information, see Peter König's website
