The Human Brain Project Calls for Projects to Contribute to its Research Infrastructure

The Human Brain Project (HBP) has launched four calls for expression of interest for projects that wish to participate in the development of its research infrastructure. Proposals can be submitted until 2 December. The selected projects will contribute to the development of the EBRAINS research infrastructure and increase the scope of its application in terms of innovation, neuroscience and clinical research.

These are the areas of expertise sought and the available funding for each call for expression of interest (CEoI):

  • CEoI 1: Validation and Inference - budget: € 700,000 for one proposal
  • CEoI 2: Brain atlas and simulation engine adapter construction - budget € 450,000 for one proposal
  • CEoI 3: Whole brain multi-parametric imaging using invasive and non-invasive recordings - budget € 450,000 for one proposal
  • CEoI 4: Rodent microcircuits - budget € 900,000 for one proposal

The CEoIs are open to applicants that are not currently involved in the HBP.

About The Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is building a research infrastructure to help advance neuroscience, medicine and computing. It is one of four FET (Future and Emerging Technology) Flagships, the largest scientific projects ever funded by the European Union.

The 10-year Project began in 2013 and directly employs some 500 scientists at more than 100 universities, teaching hospitals and research centres across Europe.

Six ICT research Platforms form the heart of the HBP infrastructure: Neuroinformatics (access to shared brain data), Brain Simulation (replication of brain architecture and activity on computers), High Performance Analytics and Computing (providing the required computing and analytics capabilities), Medical Informatics (access to patient data, identification of disease signatures), Neuromorphic Computing (development of brain-inspired computing) and Neurorobotics (use of robots to test brain simulations).

The HBP also undertakes targeted research and theoretical studies, and explores brain structure and function in humans, rodents and other species. In addition, the Project studies the ethical and societal implications of HBP's work.
