The HBP Calls for Expression of Interest (CEoIs) are for new projects to directly contribute to the development of the research infrastructure (EBRAINS) and increase the scope of its application in terms of innovation, neuroscience and clinical research. 

This Call for Expression of Interest (CEoI) aims to establish EBRAINS Services for Sensitive Data (EBRAINS SSD) as a part of the EBRAINS Research Infrastructure. The EBRAINS SSD shall 1) serve multinational research consortia in Europe, in support of basic, clinical and translational research in the diverse field of neuroscience, 2) deliver services and tools required to work efficiently across countries with research on sensitive neuroscience data originating from human subjects (directly identifiable or pseudonymised data), including collaborative sharing, collecting and analysing sensitive data. The EBRAINS SSD should also define routes for public sharing of its outputs (anonymised data and results) through the EBRAINS Data and Knowledge services.

Budget: EUR 1,000,000 Direct Costs. Maximum funding per proposal: EUR 1,000,000 (PLUS 25% Indirect Costs), one proposal will be selected.
