The Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) focuses on translational research in neuroscience and engineering with the aim to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic methods in the areas of pain, motor control, sports sciences, and rehabilitation.

Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction (SMI) is an inter-disciplinary, international center with a scientific and technical-administrative staff of 80 persons. Approximately 50% of the researchers come from abroad. SMI is operating under the Department of Health Science and Technology, Faculty of Medicine, Aalborg University.

SMI was established as a Center of Excellence in 1993 with support from the Danish National Research Foundation. In 1997, the International Doctoral School in Biomedical Science and Engineering was established in affiliation to SMI. In 2006 the School was further able to offer the first doctoral program for elite students.

The Center has three major activities, namely research, training, and innovation.
The umbrella for the research area is set by four Research Interest Groups which are further subdivided into a total of 24 laboratories.

The International Doctoral School in Biomedical Science and Engineering covers the top level training at the center. In 2006, the School was awarded a grant from The Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation to start a doctoral program for elite students. At the MSc level, SMI offers a 5-year program in several degrees.

Innovation is based on grants from the North Jutland region and the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. SMI launched an innovation program in 2006 aiming at developing SMI research results into commercial products in co-operation with biomedical and pharmacological industry.
