The Human Brain Project

The Human Brain Project (HBP, is an ambitious 10-year research initiative, and part of the EU flagship program[1]. The HBP is developing an innovative ICT[2] infrastructure (the HBP Joint Platform), that will help neuroscientists and clinical researchers integrate data and knowledge about the brain across all levels of its spatial and temporal organisation. Using detailed digital representations, reconstructions, and simulations it aims to give tools to thousands of researchers to advance and accelerate our understanding of the functioning of the human brain and its diseases.

Through this Call for Expressions of Interest (CEoI), HBP is looking for a new Partner with coordination of gender equality activities experience to join the project's next phase, which will be funded under Horizon 2020.


Scope of the Call for Coordination of Gender Equality Activities

Working towards gender equality is an essential part of European research and innovation policy, which includes a strong commitment to the promotion of equal opportunities and a balanced participation of women and men at all levels in research teams and in management structures. In addition, it reflects our dedication to increase the scientific quality and societal relevance of produced knowledge, technologies and innovations by integrating an in-depth understanding of both genders’ needs, behaviours and attitudes.

Success in this Call should not be considered as a commitment by the HBP or the European Commission to continue funding the Partner after the end of the SGA2 period. The continuation of this activity will be subject to the same review as all other HBP activities.
