FLAG-ERA JTC 2017 - Human Brain Project (HBP)

Le 31 juillet 2017

FLAG-ERA JTC 2017 on the Human Brain Project is open.

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a European Commission Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship. The HBP aims to put in place a cutting-edge, ICT-based scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience and brain-inspired computing. The Project promotes collaboration across the globe, and is committed to driving forward European industry. 

The HBP Flagship was launched by the European Commission's Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) scheme. With Flagships, the Commission proposes a new partnering model for visionary, long-term European cooperative research in the European Research Area, demonstrating the potential for common research efforts.

The HBP has the following main objectives:

  • Create and operate a European scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience, and other brain-inspired sciences
  • Gather, organise and disseminate data describing the brain and its diseases
  • Simulate the brain
  • Build multi-scale scaffold theory and models for the brain
  • Develop brain-inspired computing, data analytics and robotics
  • Ensure that the HBP's work is undertaken responsibly and that it benefits society.

More information on the HBP's Flagship Objectives is available in the Framework Partnership Agreement.
